  3. Financial controllers

 MSF does not recruit the following professionals as expatriate staff:

  1. Acupuncturists
  2. Aroma therapists
  3. Oncologists
  4. Dentists / dental surgeons
  5. Dieticians
  6. Doctors of traditional Chinese medicine
  7. BUMS (Unani), BAMS (Ayurveda) and BHMS (Homeopathy)
  8. Massage therapists
  9. (Most) super-specialised surgeons
