medical programme

MEDICAL PROGRAMME

The medical programme is meant for qualified medical persons i.e. doctors and nurses etc. and medical students from all over the world. In this programme, you get to practice your medical skills and also get to learn from our local qualified doctors. It is one of the strictest programmes and requires a high level of discipline. For placements we take our volunteers to local hospitals both public and private as we try to make this a learning and eye opening time for our volunteers in this field. For medical students in our placement you under a qualified doctor so as to learn as much as you can and also for them to make sure that you are not involved or made to do anything that is beyond your ability. You will be required to produce paper work to prove that you are practicing medicine and you are in a certified institution from your home country.
