Tanzania: Volunteer Medical Placements and Work-Experience

Volunteer and staff at local hospital

Volunteering abroad on a Medicine & Healthcare placement with Projects Abroad is an excellent way to gain Medicine & Healthcare work experience combined with the chance to help people in some of the poorest medical institutions in the developing world.

As a Medicine & Healthcare volunteer in Tanzania you will have the opportunity to gain a wide range of medical and healthcare work experience in a variety of medical settings.

Your Role as a Medicine & Healthcare Volunteer in Tanzania

Volunteer on a Medical placement

Medicine & Healthcare volunteers in Tanzania work in a variety of medical institutions in and around the town of Arusha in northern Tanzania.

We can usually match volunteers with an interest in a specific department or area to a clinic or hospital where you can specialise. Please let us know when you apply if you do have any preferences.

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. Pre-university volunteers usually start by observing the doctors and nurses, however you may find more practical opportunities arise once you have got to know the local staff and demonstrated a good understanding of local medical conditions. The role of volunteers who already have some medical experience also varies, and it is important to build up trust and a good relationship with the local doctors.

Facilities within the hospitals and clinics are basic and treatments are sometimes not of the standard we would expect in the West. You should be prepared to see some shocking cases and try not to get emotionally involved with the patients. Your working hours will usually be decided on a weekly basis, however most volunteers work from Monday to Friday and have the weekends free.
