Dr Caroline Baugh
Caroline qualified as a doctor in 1998 and rapidly developed an interest in emergency and pre-hospital care. She has worked in various hospitals in London, gaining experience in a number of different specialities, from Accident and Emergency to Anaesthetics, Intensive Care, Paediatrics and High Risk Obstetrics. She is ALS, ATLS and APLS qualified.
This, and a Diploma in Tropical Medicine, at least partially prepared her for a two-year post, working as the Medical Director for Medecins Sans Frontieres (Doctors without Borders) in Northern Sudan. This entailed the medical management of a large country programme – treating a variety of diseases including Severe Malnutrition, Malaria, Leishmaniasis, Tuberculosis, HIV, and many others. She was responsible for the medical planning and implementation of MSF's emergency health and nutrition programme in response to the ongoing crisis in Darfur, the largest ever MSF response.
When not at work, she tries to get as far away from it all as possible, usually either by heading out sailing or by walking up some hill or other. She recently skied over 600 km in the Arctic on an endurance race to the Magnetic North Pole – adding to her first hand knowledge of medicine in rather extreme and unusual environments!Back to The Team
