    well i wanted to know what name they give to the doctors who go around to different countries when there is a disaster? I mean that's their job, not voluntarily. That is what they specialise in...or is there anything such as this? all web pages seem to be talking about volunteering?

    I want to know so i can research

    Thanks

    It's not a distinct -ology (though I would imagine it would require some knowledge of how to practice medicine in extreme conditions and often decent knowledge of tropical medicine, someone correct me if I am wrong).

    As you can see MSF want doctors from all manner of different specialities:

    Have a look on their website, after 30 seconds i found this:

    MSF is particularly seeking HIV specialists, paediatricians, anaesthetists, surgeons, obstetricians/gynaecologists and infectious disease specialists. Primary care physicians undertake a combination of curative care and teaching/administrative duties, with the balance varying according to the project. Curative care generally takes place in clinic settings and to some degree in field hospitals or existing hospitals. Teaching and administrative responsibilities include supervising and training local medical staff, planning medical programmes, pharmacy management and medical supplies and reporting on medical activities

    I go now and then as a doctor to underdeveloped countries, and will be going towards the end of this year to stay for two years rather than the shorter periods I've done in the past. (Not with MSF, and entirely voluntarily). As others have said, there is no distinct specialty - doctors of most specialties are needed abroad. You can do a postgrad diploma in tropical medicine at Liverpool or London though.

    Complete nonsense

    At least gain an iota of knowledge on the subject before spewing such copious amounts of verbal crap.
