Type: Medical & Health Care,
Volunteer in Ghana in a hospital that offers services in general medicine, surgery, obstetrics and gynaecology, laboratory tests, x-ray, dermatology, venereology, ophthalmology, ECG, mother and child healthcare and ultrasound. There is only one laboratory for all these departments where all patients get sent for tests. For anyone looking to get experience in a laboratory this project is a great place to start. Your level of experience is important as there are different tasks that you can get involved in depending on your level of experience and your help will be greatly appreciated by local staff.
Volunteers will assist wherever is needed in the laboratory, working under the local lab technicians. Your role will vary depending on your experience but will involve talking to patients and administering the appropriate tests on them and also analysing laboratory results.
This project is based in a hospital that offers services in general medicine, surgery, obstetrics and gynaecology, laboratory tests, x-ray, dermatology, venereology, ophthalmology, ECG, mother and child healthcare and ultrasound. For all these departments there is only one laboratory where all patients get sent for tests which means that there is an incredibly high workload.
No particular skills are required to take part in the project although any experience will certainly be helpful to you. You must have a keen interest in laboratory work and be enthusiastic and willing to take on any task that is given to you.
You will be based in Accra, a modern landscape hugging the Gulf of Guinea and the largest city in Ghana. While it boasts a waterfront location, most of Accra’s action happens away from the coast line and in the centre. Accra is exhausting and exhilarating at the same time, with the hustle and bustle giving way to coveted areas of peace and tranquillity.
All projects are self-funded, but include accommodation, food, airport transfer and training. Click to apply and a project advisor will be in touch to discuss price and availability.
