Medic

With oil rigs operating throughout the world and are staffed 24/7 nearly all of them require medical personnel.

Offshore oil rig medics are generally not doctors, but they will have the training and experience in the medical field as former nurses or paramedics. They manage the sick bay and order medical supplies as needed. They will also be in charge of issuing medication and keeping up with medical records for all the employees.

Being an offshore medic is a very responsible and highly challenging job. On smaller rigs, with fewer personnel, you might even have to double up as the resident safety officer and you will also be responsible for the upkeep of the sick bay and the ordering of medical supplies. In some cases you may also be required to transfer from the rig to a support vessel to attend to injured crewmen so a head for heights and, of course a good strong stomach are often the order of the day. It’s one of the most respected and rewarding jobs offshore, but it’s not for everyone. However, if you fancy a job that is as challenging as the environment in which it is carried out then perhaps the position of offshore medic is the one for you. Depending on the location your starting anual salary can range from $55,000 to $69,000
