Community Health Programs

Medical Work Experience Abroad

If you’re interested in a career in health why not volunteer on a community health program abroad and learn alternative skills and methods otherwise not available to you in your home country. You will be entrusted with the medical needs of entire communities, so a professional attitude is mandatory.

Take part in medical work experience abroad and you will expose yourself to traditional, native medical practices. Shadow a local healer and learn their methods of curing from locally sourced plants and trees. Volunteers in community health programs are encouraged to utilise the clinical skills learnt in the classroom and in training so you will very much be involved in the treatment of patients. You might find yourself observing surgeons in theatre, shadowing nurses in wards and organising office admin so that records are kept and stored for later reference.

Medical work experience abroad is a great way to gain first-hand experience and insight into the local health care system of your desired country. There are projects in India, Ghana, Sri Lanka, Tanzania and many more. Why not take part as a volunteer on a community health program on your gap year?
