We can only receive a few interns a year. Usually, we directly contact the academic institutions and/or post our internships offers on this website .

an internship is always unpaid and an agreement with the academic institution is compulsory.





Due to lack of availability and means to adequately support them, MSF does not send interns or volunteers to projects in the field. All our staff members working in the field have employment contracts. 

If you want to work on the field with MSF, you will find more informations on this website. 

Go in the field.
