Long Term, Uganda – Psychiatrist with AIM Care

Location: AIM Care Kampala, Uganda

80% of Uganda is engaged in agriculture. The healthy economy of the 1960s was crippled in 1972 by the expulsion of the Asian business community, and then virtually destroyed by tyranny and wars. It has steadily improved since 1992. Under previous government regimes there were restrictions on persecuted Christians, but there is now freedom of religion.

We are looking for a psychiatrist who can provide preventative and curative mental health care services (specifically psychiatric services) for missionary personnel, including evaluations and treatment. The individual will be part of Africa Based Support ministries, based at AIM Care in Kampala, Uganda. An aspect of the role requires leading workshops on mental health issues and providing advice to AIM leadership and national church leaders regarding mental health care of AIM members.



Required: Sufficient experience to provide psychiatric care to adults with a broad range of issues without supervision.

Desired: Experience with Youth or Children; experience in using a wide variety of modalities; living and working in a cross-cultural setting; experience of long distance counselling (i.e. Skype or e-mail); experience of working in a team context (preferably multi-cultural); experience of teaching and leading workshops

Training & qualifications:

Required: Fully qualified medical practitioner with speciality in Adult/General Psychiatry using a variety of modalities

Desired: Training in managing youth and/or children

Personal characteristics:

Ideally the candidate will be creative, self-motivated, able to take initiative, able to cope well under pressure and able to ask questions or for direction when appropriate. You will have an ability to thrive in a cross-cultural team and ministry setting, be a ‘team player’, resilient and be able to demonstrate a proven consistent walk with God and godly life-style. Someone from a non-English speaking context is especially needed.
