Medicine Elective Placements in Kenya

Taking your Medicine Elective in Kenya is an excellent way to gain the experience required for your course. It also provides the chance to help people in some of the poorest medical institutions in the developing world.

Projects Abroad works with both small health clinics and large government hospitals in Kenya. Medical Elective students can have the opportunity to gain experience in a wide variety of areas. There are opportunities to specialise in general medicine/outpatients, surgery, maternity, paediatrics, palliative care, work in the laboratory and child welfare. You will be able to work with patients suffering from HIV/Aids, TB and malnutrition.

You may get the opportunity to take part in medical outreach work. Here you may visit an orphanage or school where children attend workshops on general healthcare including the importance of hand-washing and teeth cleaning, or you may work treating wounds and changing dressings etc.

Supervision on your Elective Placement

You will shadow one of our supervisors who all speak English and are experienced at working with western medical and healthcare students. Your supervisor, a qualified doctor, will be keen to test out your medical knowledge, as well as giving you the benefit of their training and experience.

Whatever your chosen specialism, Projects Abroad will work with you and your university to ensure any requirements for your Elective are met. Our in country staff are experienced in liaising with universities.

During your stay in Kenya you will live with a local host family in Nakuru. By volunteering with Projects Abroad you will also be joining our volunteer community in Kenya and you are sure to find other volunteers to spend evenings and weekends with.
