Romania: Volunteer Medical Placements and Work-Experience

Medicine in Romania As a Medical volunteer in Romania you can choose from two placements. One is based in a day care centre where volunteers with some previous experience in the fields of Neurology, Orthopedics, Paediatrics, Physiotherapy, Psychiatry or Psychotherapy can specialise in their chosen area and help with the treatment of the children. The second option is based in a hospice and is specifically for volunteers with some physiotherapy experience.

All volunteers joining these two projects should have at least a year of related studies or training. We recommend that all medical volunteers stay for a minimum of two months, in order to build a greater relationship with both the patients and staff, and to witness improvements in patients after treatment.

By volunteering abroad on these projects you will gain a large amount of valuable work experience alongside some extremely skilled and talented doctors and physiotherapists. Through showing initiative and building a good rapport with your colleagues, you can get very involved with the doctors and patients with whom you are working.

Volunteer abroad on a Medical Project in Romania

Volunteers on a Medical placement Volunteers joining the Medical project at the day care centre work with children aged from one up to 18 years old. The centre receives about 30 children each day and they have a variety of conditions from treatable physical disabilities to Downs Syndrome.

The centre offers a variety of treatments to the children including physiotherapy, massage, educational programmes, kinetotherapy, psychological treatment and speech therapy. The centre is keen to have up to four volunteers, with each volunteer specialising in one of the following areas; Neurology, Orthopedics, Paediatrics, Physiotherapy, Psychiatry or Psychotherapy. Please let us know which areas you would like to work in when you apply.

On arrival you will be introduced to your supervisor, you will work very closely with your supervisor and have regular meetings about treatment options, recovery methods and procedures. Your exact role will depend upon your specific skills and experience. Volunteers initially shadow the local staff, however, if you show enthusiasm and a good level of knowledge you will help arrange and evaluate the patient’s treatment program; implementing new ideas and methods to aid their recovery.


Volunteer abroad on a Physiotherapy Project in Romania

Our Physiotherapy project is based in a large hospice offering palliative care to 70 children aged from babies to teenagers and over 600 adults. This placement is physically and emotionally challenging and volunteers should be prepared to see patients with advanced illnesses and incurable diseases.

The local staff try to improve the quality of life for all patients and the hospice provides hope once other medical institutions have concluded that there’s nothing more they can do. Volunteers assist the local staff to help the patients remain as functional as possible and help them to retain some dignity and control at the end of their lives.

Physiotherapy volunteers will work closely with their project supervisor who will be a local qualified physiotherapist. Together you will plan and carry out various treatment programmes for the children at the hospice. The Physiotherapy programme includes work with the children in a sensory room using visual and audio stimulation as well as hydrotherapy sessions.
