Christoffel Blindenmission (CBM e.V.), a professional organisation in the field of prevention of blindness and combat against blindness, officially recognised by the World Health Organisation (WHO), supports through its local partners more than 1,000 projects in over 100 countries, especially in Asia, Africa and Latin America. CBM initiated the worldwide campaign “Vision 2020” and aligns its prevention of blindness programmes to the aims of this campaign.
In the scope of our eye work we second ophthalmologists on a long-term contract basis or as short-term assignments. We furthermore enable ophthalmologists undergoing training to visit suitable projects as “observers”.
The contract period for long-term assignments generally varies between two and four years. We are looking for ophthalmologists with clinical expertise who are willing to receive additional training on operation techniques as per different local circumstances. The salary offered is in line with salaries paid to German civil servants, including bonuses and insurance coverage.
The qualification of ophthalmologists for short-term assignments should include third-world experience and the willingness to fill in vacancies and / or periods of leave, or to step into the breach at one of our hospitals where higher work load arises. Remuneration and all other expenses will be covered by CBM. The period of such a short-term assignment varies between at least four
