Join our Public Health project in India or in Nepal or East Africa and gain practical experience in basic community healthcare. This project takes place outside of a hospital environment, focusing instead on disadvantaged communities.

You’ll be part of our efforts to change this by working on outreaches and running awareness campaigns. You’ll work with doctors and nurses to do basic health checks during home visits and educational outreaches. The work you do will help encourage people to lead healthier lives. In the process, you’ll gain plenty of practical experience to add to your CV, and learn basic medical skills like measuring blood pressure.

You can choose to specialise in medical fields such as: Nursing, Midwifery, Physiotherapy, Public Health, Nutrition, Occupational Therapy, Speech Therapy, Dentistry and Pharmacy.

This project is ideal for anyone looking to pursue a career in healthcare. You’ll gain practical experience in conducting an array of basic health checks and work alongside medical and public health professionals. In addition, you’ll gain valuable insight into healthcare practices in a developing country.
