Our Medical, Nursing & Health elective placement in Ghana provides medical students, nurses and professionals with the opportunity to gather work-experience in two locations.
You will spend half your placement/elective in a general hospital in the capital city of Accra and the other half at a health-clinic in the heart of a rural coastal village.
While at the hospital you will be shadowing a doctor in one of Accra’s biggest hospitals. Each week you will get to experience a different ward within the hospital dependent on your experience and interests.
During your time in the rural health clinic you will become a valuable member of the supporting staff and experience the challenges and differences between rural and city medical treatments and access.
*It is important to note that the facilities and resources on this project are extremely limited and provide a different working environment to what most medical students have experienced before.
