Overview

Volunteering Solutions offer an amazing volunteer work opportunity in medical and healthcare in Africa. The Medical Volunteering Program in Uganda is highly suited for medical interns, students, and professionals. Interns are placed in a healthcare center that has over 140 beds and offers opportunities in the Radiology, Dental, Pediatric, Surgery, Maternity, OPD, and other departments. As the health centers are often understaffed thus the hospitals can really use an extra hand. Work will last for anywhere between 4-6 hours a day and can be extended in case there is an emergency. Weekly health workshops and camps are also organized from time to time where interns also join the local teams in spreading awareness in villages, work together in organized camps and Voluntary Counseling and Testing (VCT) programs. The medical healthcare opportunity in Uganda is ideal to get an insight into the working of health clinics and hospitals, help the patients and get hands-on work experience.

Volunteers for this project will have to be 18 years and above and will have to be enrolled in medical studies. A recommendation letter (preferably), resume and letter of motivation is necessary to apply for this project.
