Duration: 2 weeks to 1 year
Approx Costs: 500 to 2000 $ Dollars (US)

This important project was created with the goal of supplying essential medical treatment to vulnerable residents in India. 

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

Start Dates

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.

Requirements

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!
