We can arrange medical elective placements, nursing or pre-medical internships, internships in therapy, midwifery etc. as well as Final Year Rotations and volunteer placements for health care professionals in the above mentioned fields at various locations in Tanzania. You will gain first hand experience in medicine and health care in another cultural environment.
