Volunteer Medicine Placements in Fiji

Volunteer Medical placements in Fiji

Volunteering on a Medicine placement in Fiji is an exciting experience. As a Medicine volunteer you will gain valuable work experience alongside some extremely skilled and talented doctors. Volunteers will find that the facilities in the hospitals and clinics are generally of a good standard; however you are likely to encounter some diseases and conditions that are less common than in North America and Europe.

It is preferred that Medicine volunteers in Fiji have completed at least one year of medicine or healthcare related studies or training by the time they join this project. Your exact role within the hospital or clinic will be determined by your level of medical experience as well as the enthusiasm and effort which you show to the local staff. Through showing initiative and building a good rapport with your colleagues, you can get more involved with the doctors and patients with whom you are working.

Our volunteers work in hospitals and clinics in and around Nadi and Lautoka, on the western side of Viti Levu. Volunteers have the opportunity to shadow doctors in a number of different departments. On arrival you will be introduced to your supervisor, whose role is to ensure that you have the opportunity to learn as much as possible during your placement. By observing the doctors and nurses, you will learn about different conditions and treatments and can discuss the cases with them to improve your medical knowledge.

Your working hours will usually be decided on a weekly basis, however most volunteers work from Monday to Friday and have the weekends free.

Medicine in Fiji will be available from 1st May 2014.
