Make a REAL difference in Morocco with Midwifery Internship Program
- Volunteer Opportunity posted by Love Volunteers
This essential program places volunteers right where help is needed. Participants can experience a new country and culture, while also gaining first-hand experience and developing 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. 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 be given to those who have proven they are ready and competent.
Goals of this Project:
- Provide essential maternity care in Morocco
- Provide volunteer labor in busy under-resourced hospitals
- Provide interns with valuable knowledge and experience in maternity care – Moroccan-style
- Enable inter-cultural exchange which benefits both locals and international volunteers alike.
- Housing Available
- Language/Cultural Support Available
- International Volunteers
