Volunteers with medical/nursing training are welcome to join this project. Placements can include a community hospital, specialized care center, or a larger general facility. There are opportunities for hands on patient care, as well as observation and shadowing of the local professional.
Volunteers will be supervised by the local registered medical professional/staff (trainer). Medical/nursing training is required, certifications must be submitted for approval. Volunteers will participate in a one day field visit of local community health post/rural clinic to observe health cases and offer assistance.
At the end of the placement, hospital will issue evaluation report or certificate for the student for their time they spend in that particular hospital.
