In an effort to recruit field doctors to join its peacekeeping forces and missions around the world, the United Nations is taking a closer look at Israel.

Next month, a group of UN officials, led by UN Medical Director Jillann Farmer, will be visiting Israel to meet potential candidates for the positions.

The candidates need to have a medical degree, more than five years of experience and knowledge of English or French. Preferred medical specialties include emergency medicine, trauma specialists, pediatricians and psychiatrists.

According to Israel’s Ambassador to the UN Danny Danon, who is organizing the trip, Israel’s security forces and medical first responders, who have experience working in disaster zones, provide a source of desirable human capital for such positions.

The UN representatives will place a particular focus on recruiting female candidates with the experience suitable for serving in key positions in UN peacekeeping missions. Currently, women make up only about 10% of these positions.

During their trip to Israel, the seminar leaders will present the potential candidates with the various positions available at the UN and explain the application and acceptance processes.

“The human capital in Israel is the secret to our success as a nation and we are proud of the many women leaders in this profession,” Danon said in a statement.
