Ghana Medical Project
If you are someone who is looking for medical work experience but also wants to travel and experience different parts of the world then the Ghana Medical Project is perfect for you.
What will I be doing?
This internship gives you the chance to work inside Accra’s largest hospital whilst shadowing a doctor gaining first-hand knowledge and information. This project doesn’t just give you experience in one field either- each week you will change wards within the hospital depending on which discipline sparks your interests. Your mentor will show you all the particulars of Western African medicine.
What about physiotherapy? We’ve got you covered. The project also offers physiotherapy placements so if this is something you want to get involved in, enquire with us now!
During your stay you will be staying in the Volunteer House which you will be sharing with up to 25 volunteers for a lively community style experience. You will be staying in single sex dorm rooms which all have air conditioning. The rooms are well decorated, clean and simple. There are shared bathrooms throughout the house.
You will receive 2 cooked meals a day, breakfast and dinner and the project managers will help you find a place to eat for lunch, or you can cook it yourself in the house.
Ghana is one of the friendliest countries in Africa. You will experience being welcomed with joyful faces by all the locals who love to have oversees visitors. The Volunteer House is situated in Labadi which is on the outskirts of Accra and is only five minutes from the beautiful sandy beaches and a 20-minute drive from the city. Any amenities that you may need such as convenience stores, pharmacies and forex bureaus are all within a short distance from the house. The area where you will be staying is very quiet and inside a large, gated compound. The team will always be there to help make you feel as safe as possible during your trip.
