Participants in this Medical internship program will have the opportunity to learn about the healthcare system of India and its specifics while supporting doctors, medical staff and patients. The placements are in South India, in the states of Karnataka and Tamil Nadu. The tasks and responsibilities will be assigned based on each volunteer’s experience, background and skill set. Volunteer duties can range from simply observational to following doctors on their ward rounds, assisting in outpatient clinics, and shadowing doctors and paramedics.
Volunteers in this program will be exposed to many different cases and various aspects of the daily routine in a hospital. The doctors and medical staff will be happy to share their experience and specialized knowledge, and answer your questions.
Duration of the project: The project is run all year round. Minimum duration is 1 month. The project starts on the first Monday of every month.

Participation in an international project can valuable – and often essential – to your studies or professional realization. Many of our volunteers are professionals in training or researchers looking to build their skill set. Current and future social workers, teachers, tutors, team leaders can benefit from one of our many projects in orphanages, social centers, and other people-oriented settings. Nurses and doctors frequently participate in our projects in medical centers, hospitals, or special needs facilities. Students take advantage of our environmental sustainability, biology, restoration, or archeology projects. The list is hardly exhaustive. A well-picked volunteer experience can inspire you, motivate your professional aspirations, give you hands-on experience, and build you up in ways impossible at a lecture or in the office.
