Volunteers/Interns in our dental elective program in Ghana work alongside doctors and nurses. This volunteer program is especially suitable for:
Alter 18+
Alleinreisend
Pärchen
Gruppen
50+

Seize the opportunity to learn from experienced dentists by joining our Dentistry internship in Ghana. You’ll shadow dentists as they move around the hospital completing day-to-day tasks. This is a great way to learn about dentistry in a developing country and add practical work experience to your CV.

You’ll also assist dentists as they provide free basic dental checks to disadvantaged children. When you aren’t helping with dental checks, you’ll talk with the children about the importance of good dental health. You can demonstrate effective teeth brushing and run educational talks on gum disease.


Project Summary

This internship is an opportunity to gain experience and possibly some credits within a dental department of a hospital in Accra. Ghanaians have access to a dental treatment in most major hospitals. The setup and the working conditions are very different from what you are accustomed to in your home country. The dental department deals with emergencies as well as routine dental appointments.

 

Why choose this project?

You will be exposed to the challenges dentists as well as patients in need of dental care encounter in developing countries. The lack of knowledge on preventative dental hygiene might expose you to advanced dental conditions. This is a great experience abroad to help you launch your medical dental career.

Depending on your experience and training, your role will differ and you might be given more or fewer responsibilities. Initially, your role will be mainly observational. Regardless, the volunteers will assist local practitioners and observe how dental treatments are performed in a developing country. Volunteers will also help by maintaining patients’ records, setup the instruments and assist with basic tasks while the dentists treat patients.

Tagesablauf

As a volunteer or intern your day will range from observational to direct patient assistance, depending on your level of knowledge. An important element of these volunteer placements is being exposed to healthcare practices in a different culture, which can be a tremendous learning experience, no matter what your background might be. To work alongside local professionals observing different approaches to various conditions and treatments, and to assist with regular outreach work.

Freizeitaktivitäten

Accra has developed a fairly western social scene in the recent years, mainly because of the large expatriate community in the city. On Friday night, singing karaoke in the champs sports bar at the Paloma Hotel, you would be forgiven for thinking you’d stepped back into Europe. And this has its place-after a month living in the village, a cocktail and some fluent English conversation can be just what you need.

There are some great deal of bars in Accra with much more feel, and much more opportunity to interact with Ghanaians, one popular place with volunteers is ’By well’ at the southern end of Osu Oxford street, where the house band plays every Thursday evening. Cape coast also has good bars, ‘Oasis’ on the beach near the Castle is popular and sometimes has impressive live drumming and dancing shows.

Spot bars are usually relatively inexpensive, and the sorts of places local people to for their beer after work. Learning some Twi or Ewe and some Ga from the locals as the sun goes down and sip an ice-cold star or club beer can be a great and very cheap evening out. Labadi beach is also a place where volunteers go swimming and horse riding.
Ghana being a safari destination for tourists, our program has established links to various destinations for our volunteers. Volunteers have the opportunity to visit the famous Kakum canopy walk, Tafi Atome monkey sanctuary, Wli water falls, Cape Coast castle and the Mole national park.
