  • Khoa Tran
  • Remote (United Arab Emirates)
Multiple Internships for Purchase

Description

Observe local professionals and perform routine tasks in various departments as you work directly with doctors & nurses to heal patients in & around cities in Ghana. This volunteer program is especially suitable for:

Medical care is a necessity of human rights and these hospitals and clinics that we partner with strive to provide the best care. Due to this, they are very welcoming of anyone who is willing to help.

Volunteers will be placed with doctors and nurses in actual care facilities in Ghana. They will increase their medical knowledge while actively participating in the daily operations of hospitals and medical centres.

Volunteers will provide all due assistance to doctors, nurses and the rest of the healthcare staff in hospitals and clinics in Ghana. Certified doctors and nurses will provide the daily treatment of illness while medical and nursing students are placed as assistants. There are many different departments available including maternity, pediatrics, mental health, surgery, pharmacy, accident and emergency, physical therapy, etc. This is a great opportunity to learn about different techniques from other countries and to improve your own knowledge.

This volunteer experience is a wonderful opportunity for learning and honing skills. You will learn what it is like to work in the daily operations of the hospital as well as the importance of working with doctors and nurses. OGVO medical / nursing programs are found all around cities in Ghana. Volunteer nurses will have the opportunity to be a part of medical outreach work such as visiting local orphanages or traveling to remote villages to provide medical assistance

Your level of involvement at the project is dictated by medical experience, duration of program and willingness to get involved. The medical staffs are accountable for you whilst you’re under their supervision, so it is completely up to them if you are permitted and want to get involved in hands-on procedures. Whilst previous OGVO volunteers have been given the chance to administer IV injections, dress wounds, taking blood pressure etc, we can never guarantee or promote hands-on involvement for participants regardless of their medical experience or background.

Generally speaking, those with little or no medical experience assume a largely observational role. If you are studying medically related degree, then you should have more opportunity to undertake some more basic hands-on involvement. However, to reiterate we can never guarantee or endorse hands-on experience should you choose to get hands-on, as the decision ultimately lies with the medical staff.
