Interning in Medicine in Tanzania with Mbassa Adventures
Generally, your specific activity within a hospital or clinic will depend on your level of medical experience, expertise, enthusiasm, and effort shown to the medical staff. Pre-university interns will start by observing experienced doctors and nurses. More practical opportunities will open up as one gets to know the local staff and understand local medical conditions.
Most hospitals and clinics have basic facilities which are below the standards one may be used to in developed countries.
Your working hours will usually be decided on a weekly basis and most volunteers work from Monday to Friday and have the weekends free.
You will stay in our volunteer’s hostel or you may opt to stay with a local Tanzanian host family who will welcome you into their family and teach you Tanzanian culture. You can spend your free time exploring Arusha.
