Description du projet et du rôle des volontaires

Our program in Accra is not only suitable for already decided medicine students but also for people, who simply want to get a real insights in medical work - e.g. as a volunteer to support the daily work in Ghana where help is needed.

During your time in Ghana you have two ways to do this program: As a volunteer without any pre-experience in the medical sector you will be supporting the so-called "Mobile Clinics" in the rural areas outside of Accra. In this areas locals nearly have no or only limited access to medical care. Mobile clinics can help them to have access to a basic and primary health care like vaccinations, life-saving medicine and treatment of small injuries.

As a student of medicine you have the chance to gain practical experiences in a field of choice and Ghanas biggest hospital! Tropical medicine, orthopaedics, midwifery or surgery can be named as some of a lot of examples. It might also can be taken as a medical traineeship if you let us know the conditions for that from your university!
