We provide elective placements for students studying medicine, nursing, midwifery, nutrition and occupational therapy. We also provide volunteering opportunities for those interested in following a career in these professions and for those already qualified. Our current placement programme covers:
- Medical Electives – which cover medicine, nursing, nutrition and occupational therapy.
- Medical Students volunteering – for those interested in learning and gaining experience in their chosen field in a developing country and in helping the local communities with their knowledge and skills.
- Medical professionals volunteering – all medically qualified people who wish to take part in voluntary work in a developing country to deepen their knowledge and understanding of the wider world and/or to share their expertise with the local communities.
- Midwifery Electives and Volunteering – For those training to be a midwife who are looking for a medical elective abroad and for students who are interested in a career in midwifery, we have placements to offer where you will gain valuable experience.
Through our close associations with local hospitals and our experience of being the leading partner in setting up and running temporary medical clinics in remote rural locations, we have unrivalled opportunities for medical students to experience a wide range of learning opportunities. You will be able to work alongside medical professionals in St Mary’s Hospital in Mumias where resources are limited and staffing levels poor.
