Gain work experience for your resume while learning directly from doctors in hospitals and doing hands-on health checks in the rural local communities. Many of these communities cannot afford regular access to healthcare, so our interns help to monitor their health status and provide basic healthcare services such as treatment for infected wounds, ringworm, or malaria. We also provide much needed health education on basic hygiene practices, malaria prevention, and sexual education.
Shadow a qualified Veterinarian and help them with tasks as they treat animals ranging from dogs and cats to farm animals such as goats and chickens. There is a shortage of veterinary care in Ghana, so with your help we can reach more animals in the region and educate local farmers and pet owners about proper animal care. This experience will be sure to make your resume stand out when you apply to Veterinary schools or Clinics.
Learn from nurses in different hospital departments and do health checks during medical outreaches.
Conduct health checks and raise awareness about disease in disadvantaged communities.
