Make a REAL difference in India with Medical Internship Program
- Volunteer Opportunity posted by Love Volunteers
This important project was created with the goal of supplying essential medical treatment to vulnerable residents in India. Participating in a Medical Internship program in India is a highly valuable experience for students studying medicine and/or nursing, as they will get to gain valuable international exposure – often far more in-depth that they would normally be exposed to while in their home countries – and as a specialized medical internship volunteer, they will gain insight into new techniques and be able to clearly distinguish themselves from peers. Medical Internship assignments take place in a large hospital located in South Delhi, an area in close proximity to some of the best shops and markets in the city, and just 15 minutes from the volunteer house where participants will stay! Interns on this project are paired along with a local doctor/nurse or other medical professional during their time at the hospital, and while the internship will be mostly observation based, each intern will have the opportunity to shadow, observe and give basic assistance to patients in the hospital during the period of the internship.
Goals of this Project:
- Save lives and make a real difference to the people of Delhi
- Provide free healthcare to those who need it most
- Improve the health and long term wellbeing of the residents of Delhi
- Offer a teaching experience for medical students while also supplying a much-needed volunteer labour force
- 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 the Indian healthcare system. It is open to those with experience and/or education in the field of medicine, as well as med-school and pre-med students. Ideally, volunteers on this project will have at least a basic knowledge of the local language in order to communicate effectively with patients and staff, though this is not a pre-requisite. Naturally, all applicants must also have a genuine willingness to help, show drive and initiative, and bring a positive 'can-do' attitude. If this sounds like you, we want you on the team!
