Medical Volunteering with Frontier Australia medical volunteering abroad

Medical Volunteering Abroad

Many people are choosing to gain valuable experience in the field of medicine by taking part in voluntary placements abroad. This can provide invaluable real-world knowledge and will undoubtedly help you to stand out in this competitive field. Taking various forms, including short term placements and extensive internships, this is your opportunity to get some great experience and make a significant contribution to a community that really needs it. It will also give you a useful insight into the medical industry in developing countries.

What could you be doing?

Your specific skill set and experience will largely govern what you could be doing on your placement. It will also depend on your interests and preferences.

The wide variety of medical volunteering projects could involve programmes such as shadowing medical staff at local clinics and hospitals, outreach duties, administration and clerical work as well as raising awareness of health issues through workshops within the local community.

Whether you have significant or little experience in the medical field, the wide variety of specific and general programmes means that you are sure to be able to find the perfect option for your situation and requirements.

Where could a medical placement take you?

Your placement could be based in a variety of places and departments, including hospitals, clinics, community outposts, orphanages and schools.

Choosing a placement in the Americas will bring you closer to the underprivileged communities living in and around some of the most fascinating cities in this exciting region, where your efforts will be much needed and highly appreciated.

Dedicating your time to volunteering in Africa on a medical placement or internship will be hugely valuable to the community you are helping, many of which are some of the poorest in the world.

Asia, Australasia and the South Pacific also offer plenty of opportunities for medical volunteering and the chance to strengthen your CV with first-hand experience.
