Doctors are primarily responsible for providing individualized outpatient, inpatient and ICU care for guests and crew. Doctors consult both crew and guests, providing timely, safe and evidence-based assessments, formulating differential diagnoses and treatment plans, performing clinical interventions and procedures, and coordinating logistics of referrals and evacuations. Doctors manage the preventative health and wellness programs for crew, and are also responsible for adhering to public health practices.
Doctors will also perform various technical and non-clinical administrative tasks that support the efficient and safe operation of the medical center. Additional duties include participation in drills, audits, inspections and training of other crew members. Technical skills are learned and practiced on board, such as X-rays acquisition, and performing a wide-array of laboratory tests and other procedures. Doctors work closely with shipboard nurses and paramedics, and report to the ship’s Senior Doctor.
All medical staff provide high level of customer service, maintaining a professional, dignified, friendly, assertive, and polite manner at all times, towards both guests and fellow crew members, and demonstrate performance consistent with the Vision, Mission and Strategic Plan of the organization.
