Students with a background in medicine, midwifery and nursing are eligible for this internship which is designed to give a practical taste of what working within the maternity ward of a hospital is all about.
Interns will be working alongside local doctors and therefore an advanced level of French is required. It is also necessary to provide documentation confirming ones involvement in a medical related degree. Lastly, interns will be asked to submit their CV and a letter of motivation which must be presented in French.
While experiencing a new country and culture, students have the opportunity to gain first-hand experience and develop useful skills within their field. Internships are available within local hospitals and will be arranged based on the students' skills and experience. Once on-site interns can expect to be working alongside local medical personnel and will have the opportunity to shadow and observe their work.
The hospital staff will be supervising the interns at all times and will be providing on-going support and assistance. Although this is not a hands-on position, interns will be involved in births and will have the opportunity to learn a great deal from these experiences. In some cases it may be possible for interns to have a more active role, but this will be dependent on their experience and the relationship they have built with the local staff. Hands-on responsibilities will only be given to those who have proven they are ready and competent.
Internships are available year round with a minimum commitment of 4 weeks. Positions will be assigned in Rabat and a commitment of 4-5 hours per day is required. Host family accommodation will be provided nearby the placement.
Overseas internships are a great way of enhancing your CV and employers generally regard this highly when recruiting. So join us in Morocco for this exciting opportunity to gain valuable experience in midwifery.
