Interns/volunteers in our nursing program in Ghana work alongside doctors, nurses and other medical professionals in various departments. This volunteer program is especially suitable for:
Alter 18+
Alleinreisend
Pärchen
Gruppen
50+

When you first arrive at the hospital you will discuss your work schedule with your VolunteerMatch Ghana coordinator and the internship supervisor. Most interns choose to spend time in a variety of departments such as accident and emergency, pediatrics, maternity, pharmacy, physical therapy, and surgery.

The hospitals provide an excellent backdrop for learning about medical practices in another country. On a daily basis you will experience different approaches to medicine and treatments and see conditions that are unusual in Europe and North America, such as malaria and typhoid.

The vast majority of medical facilities in Ghana are crying out for support from qualified international volunteers. VolunteerMatch Ghana welcome qualified healthcare professionals looking to make a difference with their time abroad.

As a volunteer, you will work alongside the local staffs that are ultimately responsible for you during your time on the placement. Please note that, as you are not registered to practice in Ghana, you will not be permitted to practice independently or undertake any complicated procedures.

If you are studying medically related degree, then you should have more opportunity to undertake some more basic hands-on involvement. Though, please note we can never guarantee hands-on experience, as the decision ultimately lies with the medical staff. Your level of hands-on involvement is dependent on your experience, duration of program and willingness to get involved. Those with little or no medical experience will assume a largely observational role. The doctors will assess your capabilities and assign responsibilities accordingly.

Highlights

  • Earn international volunteering experience by assisting doctors and nurses in treating patients in Ghana.
  • Get the opportunity to explore different medical specializations, from pediatrics and maternity to mental health and surgery.
  • Learn skills and techniques from seasoned doctors and nurses.
  • Spend a few weeks in Ghana and immerse in its rich culture and history.
  • Add to your CV or resume with this great experience

Tagesablauf

As a volunteer nurse you can use your knowledge and training to help local staff. You can work on tasks such as:

  • Helping existing staff to treat patients, including:
    • Dressing wounds, monitoring pulse, blood pressure, and temperature etc.
    • Checking and administering drugs and injections.
    • Setting up drips and blood transfusions.
  • Coordinating medical outreach programs within nearby towns and villages. As a qualified nurse you may be asked to lead some of the outreach work and supervise less qualified medical volunteers.
  • Observing and assessing the work of local student and junior nurses and teaching them new skills where appropriate.

Hospitals in Ghana are normally busiest in the mornings so this is when you will perform most of your work. However, you may be able to work some afternoons or night shifts if you are interested. You may also have the chance to spend some time in rural clinics.

Your work will take place from Monday to Friday and an exact schedule will be organized by your project supervisor when you arrive.

This project runs all year round so you can join at any time. You decide how much time you can spare and we will help you get the most out of it.

What will I gain from this project?

This voluntary work abroad will give you the chance to experience diseases and illnesses that are uncommon in your home country. You will be able to learn from local staff and discuss new ideas. Trainee nurses will also be eager to learn from your experience and you can really make a difference in this area.

During your volunteer placement you will be able to learn about Ghana’s traditions, culture, and way of life. Staff at the hospital and members of your host family will also want to hear about your life back home and your family and friends. We call this "cultural exchange" and we think it helps our volunteers gain a new perspective on life.


Freizeitaktivitäten

During weekends Volunteers/Interns have the opportunity to visit all that Ghana has to offer. Weekend trips available include visits to Mole National Park in the Northern Region of Ghana. This National Park offers a great Safari-like experience and is one of the biggest Elephant Sanctuaries in Africa with the chance to spot Lions, Leopards & Antelopes in their natural habitat.

Volunteers can also take a trip to Cape Coast in the Central Region of Ghana to relax in the beautiful beaches and see the famous Cape Coast castle, the Kakum Canopy walkway and Elmina castle, where slave trade begun.
