印度医学实习MEDICAL INTERNSHIP PROGRAM INDIA
Project Location India, Delhi
Volunteers on this incredible program have the pleasure of experiencing a stay in India's capital city. Delhi is a sprawling metropolis absolutely crammed full of everything you can possibly imagine. From the walled city of Old Delhi, where visitors can be forgiven for thinking they have been transported back in time, to modern architecture and commerce in New Delhi. An absolute assault on the senses and a wonderful introduction to India, this is a must visit destination for travellers and volunteers alike.
Participating in a Medical Internship program in India is a highly valuable experience for students studying medicine and/or nursing, as they will get to gain valuable international exposure – often far more in-depth that they would normally be exposed to while in their home countries – and as a specialized medical internship volunteer, they will gain insight into new techniques and be able to clearly distinguish themselves from peers. Medical Internship assignments take place in a large hospital located in South Delhi, an area in close proximity to some of the best shops and markets in the city, and just 15 minutes from the volunteer house where participants will stay! Interns on this project are paired along with a local doctor/nurse or other medical professional during their time at the hospital, and while the internship will be mostly observation based, each intern will have the opportunity to shadow, observe and give basic assistance to patients in the hospital during the period of the internship.
Goals of this Project:
Save lives and make a real difference to the people of Delhi
Provide free healthcare to those who need it most
Improve the health and long term wellbeing of the residents of Delhi
Offer a teaching experience for medical students while also supplying a much-needed volunteer labour force
This important volunteer program makes a huge difference to the lives of those in need of medical help, giving them additional attention and support. While working at this hospital placement, which offers full service patient care and treatment with very good facilities and infrastructure, Medical Intern volunteers will be able to select the wards/departments which they would prefer to specialize in including; Emergency, IPD Wards, Laboratory, Blood Bank, Pharmacy, Radiology/Imaging, OT, Dialysis Unit, Critical Care, General Wards, Orthopaedic, Nursing, Obstetrics and Gynaecology and Physiotherapy. Participants need to give a preference of 3-4 departments in which they would like to work. Depending on the length of the internship, volunteers will work on rotation basis through these departments. Volunteers on this project usually work between the hours of 9am to 5pm, Monday to Friday, but this can fluctuate depending upon the working schedule of the doctor/nurse they are paired with and area of the hospital they have been assigned. It is important therefore that participants are flexible, and are willing to work when they are required.
Volunteers contribute in a number of ways on the program and can expect to undertake the following tasks:
Work in a public hospital to supply medical assistance to those who need it most
Network with local medical and local project staff
Help with medical care as appropriate to the volunteer’s skills and training
Requirements 18yo+ / Qualification / Experience
This program offers an amazing opportunity for suitable applicants who are 18 years and over and who are currently studying medicine (preferably 2nd year onwards) to work alongside qualified medical professionals and gain first-hand insight into the Indian healthcare system. Ideally, volunteers on this project will have at least a basic knowledge of the local language in order to communicate effectively with patients and staff, though this is not a pre-requisite. Naturally, all applicants must also have a genuine willingness to help, show drive and initiative, and bring a positive 'can-do' attitude. If this sounds like you, we want you on the team!
Additionally, volunteers applying to join this program will be required to supply to following documentation:
This project is available year round and starts the 1st and 3rd week of each month with arrivals on SUNDAY. Volunteers can choose to participate for periods ranging from 2 weeks to 12 weeks. Longer stays can be arranged directly with the local team, but will be subject to availability and individual visa conditions.
Spaces on this project are limited and therefore subject to availability. Early booking is recommended.
For current available start dates please check the calendar on the right
Arival & Orientation Airport Pickup Included
Volunteers are met on arrival into Delhi and taken to the volunteer house where they can meet with their hosts and fellow volunteers. The following day (Monday) an orientation session is held to introduce volunteers to the programs and their new environment. The session will cover safety, transportation, basic culture and history and is a chance to get to know other volunteers and the local team and ask any questions you may have.
Volunteers in Delhi also have the option of joining the one week orientation program before starting their placement (see details in the Additional Info. section).
Arrival Day: SUNDAY 6:30AM - 10PM
Departure Day: SATURDAY
Arrival Airport: Indira Gandhi International Airport, New Delhi, India (DEL)
Volunteers on this incredible program are accommodated in a fully equipped and comfortable Volunteer House in the pleasant residential area of Greater Kailash (colloquially known as ‘GK’) in South Delhi.
Rooms are shared by up to 4 volunteers in dormitory style (bunk) or single beds. Bathrooms have western-style facilities with hot showers and air-conditioning is provided for comfort in the summer months. Bed linen is provided so volunteers need only bring personal toiletries and towels. A laundry pick-up service is available from the Volunteer House for very reasonable rates. Super easy!
WiFi is available in the house so keeping in touch with friends and families is both free and easy.
The volunteer house is conveniently located close to metro and bus stations as well as great local markets and shops so exploring the locality and city is easy and recommended! Volunteers may also stay on-site at the project if preferred and available.
Volunteers are provided with breakfast and dinner daily at the volunteer house throughout their placement and lunch can be purchased from the many local eateries near to the placement (the local team will show you their favourites during the orientation).
Indian food is not restricted to the ubiquitous ‘take-aways’ Westerners might be used to and there will be something for every palate from delectable street food to rice based dishes and curries, naans and kebabs and so much more. Dishes are often vegetarian with lentils (known locally as dal) a common ingredient.
Delhi is an extremely cosmopolitan city and international cuisine is readily available as well.
