My time in Dar es Salaam has been the most incredible life experience, and I am so happy I decided to go on this adventure. My placement in the hospital consisted of one week in pediatrics, one week in neonatal and two weeks on the maternity ward. My favorite placement was definitely the maternity ward because the nurses were so welcoming and taught me how to conduct deliveries.
We provide a large variety of bespoke clinical internships, as well as giving you access to some of the world’s most exciting cultures. These destinations are unique and diverse. Whether you fancy trekking through stunning rainforests, spotting exotic wildlife on safari, soaking up the sun on unspoilt beaches, or finding some peace in magnificent temples, there really is something for everyone.
