Surgeon

As a surgeon you supervise and coordinate surgery service in its entirety. You ensure the quality of surgical service in emergency room, out-patient clinic, operating theatre, in-patient department and dressing room. 

You’re responsible for providing the best surgical care to patients by working in strong collaboration with the team (anesthesiologists, OT-nurses, ward nurses and others) and by training the personnel in the operating room and in the surgical ward.
