The University of Texas Medical Branch (UTMB Health) and the Center for Polar Medical Operations (CPMO) are proud to serve the National Science Foundation’s US Antarctic Program
(USAP), enabling vital scientific research from the most remote places
on earth. The CPMO is responsible for the medical screening of all USAP
participants who travel to Antarctica each year, as well as providing
the healthcare providers (physicians, mid-levels and various other
clinical roles), resupplying the stations with medical supplies and
medications, and real-time medical support via telemedicine and other
assets. UTMB works as a teammate on the Lockheed Martin-led Antarctic
Support Contract, and we are always looking for talented, adventurous
and resourceful healthcare staff, particularly those with a background
in Emergency Medicine or with experience in remote medical care
UTMB Health has medical opportunities available at the South
Pole, McMurdo and Palmer Stations in Antarctica, as well as summer field
camps. These positions are seasonal and we maintain a running list of
interested candidates for future opportunities.
This is an extraordinary opportunity in a location few ever get
to visit. Working in Antarctica will provide you adventures to remember
for a lifetime. If you have questions or would like to be notified of
future opportunities please contact us.
We hope this challenge inspires you. We look forward to talking with you.
