Healthcare volunteering opportunities in rural South Africa

The Tshemba Foundation is appealing to doctors around the world to help it address a critical health care gap in rural South Africa where doctor shortages are posing substantial challenges to adequate health care. 

Volunteers will experience a stimulating and challenging working environment, treat conditions and cases not usually seen in urban areas, and help leave a legacy of improved quality of care by sharing knowledge and skills with local staff who are eager to learn.

As a Tshemba volunteer, you can enjoy tranquil and tasteful accommodation free of charge. This is the perfect escape from a hard day’s work. We offer a scenic hideaway and true bushveld refuge surrounded by an array of game, bird species and the great outdoors.

Doctors who have volunteered with Tshemba tell us that they have been re-energized and transformed by the experience, and their passion for medicine reignited.

 

Qualifications:

We welcome interest from all potential volunteers; however, the current greatest need in the area is for Family physicians, Obstetricians/Gynaecologists, Paediatricians, Internists and Anesthesiologists.

In order to practice in South Africa, all volunteers are required to first register with the Health Professionals Council of South Africa (HPCSA). We assist volunteers with the registration process with the HPCSA.

Currently, placement lengths are flexible. We look forward to hosting you whether you can come for a few weeks or a few months.
