As for paid positions on cruise ships, they average about two physicians and three nurses. I believe you work for 6 months at a time. I would contact the cruise line medical department directly at the company's headquarters or through their Web site.
Or, if you are interested in missions, try mercyships.org
. They travel the world on a fleet of hospital ships providing care to the needy.
Best of luck.
