Due to the nature of MSF's maternity projects, it is essential to have more information about your specific technical competences in obstetrics. It is a checklist, intended for Gynecologists. It must be completed according to your current level of practice.

This information will be useful for a better allocation of staff to the positions and to identify specific training needs. The lack of skills will not prevent you from being assigned a mission, so please be honest in your self-assessment.
