Medical work in Daraja Mbili

Overall rating: 10 based on 1 reviews

Program Description

As a newly established health facility located outside Arusha city, the Daraja Mbili Public Hospital has made a remarkable change in the life of the people living in the area. With its few departments and limited staff they help and attend to hundreds of people every week, but the demand of care exceeds the staff's abilities. We are therefore looking for qualified doctors, nurses and midwifes as well as students enrolled in these educations who can work along side with the permanent staff in the department of infectious diseases, the obstetrics department, the surgical ward and to assist the staff on treating the many other cases they meet every day.

Highlights

Gain unique medical experience, both theoretical and practical, working at the hospital.

    I worked at the hospital at both HIV and obstetric ward. The work consisted in providing the right medication to people. I also had to make sure that pregnant women and their babies were in a good health, provide them with immunisation and medication. I really appreciated to spend time with the patients so that we could talk about their health, but also about our life so that we both learnt a lot about each other, and about our countries.
    Regarding the accommodation, staying with the Jackson's family at the WhiteHouse was awesome! I had a lot of fun with Julieth who is Junior's sister, I enjoyed sharing dinner with all the family, Junior, Julieth, Johnson and their mama. I love the chilling place and the evening barbecues.
    Tanzania is such a beautiful country where there's wonderful beaches (you should go to Zanzibar!), mountains, rain forest, desert and wild animals.
    I will come back for sure !
