Considering the fact that Tanzania is a developing country, medical facilities aren't as improved and advanced as that of the West. For all pre-med, medical and nursing students, it'll be a great opportunity to know about the healthcare scenario of a Third World Country and effectively contribute towards the well being of the people.

Placements are provided in medical clinics, dispensaries, and hospitals located in and around the city of Arusha. This program is particularly suited for those volunteers looking for international hands-on experience and overseas medical work exposure. Medical professionals are also welcomed to be a part of this project and contribute as much as they can. Work will vary depending on the experiences of individual volunteers. 

Volunteering Solutions also arranges Dentistry and Elective placements in Tanzania. Dentistry volunteers work in the dental department in hospital placements in Arusha. The placements are suitable for dental students looking to do a Dental Elective Program in Africa and gain some valuable knowledge and experience by working under the supervision of dentists and dental assistants.
