In this thriving city, participants will be placed in a large hospital with opportunity to work in departments such as orthopedics, emergency, NICU, and OBG. Furthermore, aiding in the treatment of health complaints unfamiliar to interns such as HIV can also be part of the learning experience, with rural clinics and community visits available for participation. Working in a low-resource environment will give interns chance to develop their skills and learn about alternative healthcare systems.
