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. The doctor you will be shadowing will ensure that you are learning about every aspect of the hospital and medicine in Western Africa during your elective placement.
During your time in the health clinic you will become a valuable member of the supporting staff.
*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.
