Make a REAL difference in Ghana with Medical Internship Program
- Volunteer Opportunity posted by Love Volunteers
This wonderful medical program in Ghana plays an important role in supplying additional medical staff to the local area, and welcomes volunteers with a wide range of experience, including qualified medical personnel, medical students and pre-med students. Attendance on a medical volunteer project is itself helpful preparation for a medical career, and for this reason, provided they are enthusiastic and truly eager to help in the health sector, individuals without medical experience can be accepted. Medical volunteers will have the opportunity to undertake duties according to their own interests and areas of expertise. Medical students will shadow local doctors and nurses, assisting them and learning by observing their work at clinics and hospitals. There will be plenty of opportunity to assist directly and gain valuable experience. Volunteers play an essential role in assisting the staff at the hospital and help to deliver quality health care to this local community.
Goals of this Project:
- Improve the future prospects of the people of Ghana
- Provide quality medical care to the people of the Ashanti area
- To offer practical medical experience to volunteers
- To create cultural understanding between volunteers and locals
- Housing Available
- Language/Cultural Support Available
- International Volunteers
How To Apply
This program offers an amazing opportunity for suitable applicants who are 18 years and over to work alongside qualified medical professionals and gain first-hand insight into Ghana's healthcare system.
