Working in the Medical Team as a doctor or nurse with Cunard | Cruise Jobs & Careers

Medical Team

If you’re looking to fast-track your medical career, becoming a cruise medic is just the ticket

Join our team and you’ll gain skills and qualifications as you work in a fast-paced and rewarding environment. Our well-equipped medical centres and people-centric business ethics ensure quality patient care, with opportunities for invaluable experience across all medical specialisms.

Our teams work hard and enjoy amazing travel experiences, a stable salary and the benefits of working in the private healthcare sector.

Your career at sea

As a cruise medic you’ll grow both technical and non-technical skills, supported by a team both on board and ashore.

We’ll help you broaden your independent practitioner skillset while providing gold standard care in a unique environment. Gain technical skills such as running blood tests or performing X-rays, alongside first responder duties supporting the team with immediate patient care and transfers. You’ll also learn about the management and upkeep of a standalone medical department, including maintaining rosters, supplies, and equipment.

From a personal perspective, you’ll work within a team of other experienced medical professionals, developing strong working relationships to bring the best out of yourself and others.

All medical team members work on sister-brand ships so join us and you’ll get to experience life on board both Cunard and P&O Cruises. And should you return to shore, your years of ship experience will help you secure a more senior role.
