Medical Internship in Tanzania
You will do your internship in the second-largest hospital in Arusha, with an in-patient capacity of 100 and over 100 staff members. The hospital offers a wide range of medical services, including Obstetrics/Gynecology, Pediatrics, Maternity, Radiology, Dentistry, and Care, Treatment and Coordination for persons living with HIV, as well as a Surgical Theatre that does an average of 50-70 procedures each month.
As a participant in this program, you will have the opportunity to engage in a variety of activities depending on your level of skill and education. You will shadow local doctors, nurses, and other healthcare professionals caring for persons receiving in-patient and outpatient care. This may include monitoring, observing, and providing health outreach information to the community.
In addition to gaining valuable knowledge and experience, participants can contribute to the hospital by sharing their expertise and skills and, when possible, donating additional resources and supplies. This will help to bridge the financial gap and support the local community members who may not have easy access to quality healthcare services. Join us and become a part of this meaningful and fulfilling experience!
