Medevac Volunteers Required

The Medical Evacuation Response Group (Medevac Group) is a partnership of specialist refugee support organisations working together for a safe, orderly and effective implementation of applications under the “medevac legislation”. See

There are several groups of doctors required to work on the application process. There are different time commitments and skills required for the different roles, however if there is even a little time you can offer to assist, that would be greatly appreciated. The work is pro bono and time commitment is up to you.
  • Behind the scenes roles: FACEM/ACRRM/GP
  • Australian specialists of all types for formal application writing: psychiatrists, orthopaedic surgeons, renal physicians, neurologists, gastroenterologists, obstetricians/gynaecologists, cardiologists, pain medicine physicians, surgeons, hand surgeons, endocrinologists, dermatologists.
  • Junior doctors: admin support, data entry, writing medical summaries

If you are interested in more information, please contact the Secretariat (afmw[at]afmw[dot]com[dot]au) who will pass your details onto Dr Sara Townend who is coordinating the doctors.
