Our Medical volunteers in Japan usually work in busy Red Cross hospitals, getting to observe everything from nursing to brain surgery, while living in a beautiful and fascinating country.
Medical placements involve helping at Red Cross Hospitals and provide excellent experience for anyone hoping to work in medicine or health related fields.
The work is varied as volunteers will work in a variety of wards helping with many different tasks. Japanese lessons will be provided at the hospitals and volunteers may be asked to teach English to the nursing staff.
The more Japanese you know, the more responsible the tasks you may be given.
The role of a medical volunteer in Japan is exciting and interesting and offers the volunteer a real insight into both medical care and Japanese culture.
