Medi Trip does not only place volunteers but facilitates student internships too. Our organisation was founded when the director was a nursing student, so we understand this is such a personal journey and we make it as specific and as personal to you as we can. The goal is to make sure your placement will be an experience you will never forget
Medi Trip's vision is to create opportunities for people to share knowledge, ideas and address areas of mutual concern. And as future practitioners and health leaders, it is so important to be able to be open to new learning and share your own learning too.
Please note we have a wide range of placement areas both medical and non-medical (i.e law, accounting, teaching). Enquire to learn more on what would suit you, we are happy to help.
WHY GO ABROAD?
Global health is a major agenda and at the forefront for all nations across the globe. Most nations understand the need for collaboration and creating common goals towards improving global health. With Medi Trip, volunteers will have the opportunity to experience the public health implications on the wider community.
Medi Trip's students have the opportunity to understand the socioeconomic and health implications of poverty within a developing nation. They experience first hand the care of vulnerable patients within a healthcare system with limited resources.
Alongside pre-arrival support, you will be given a handbook filled with as much information as possible about your upcoming trip. You'll also be given a specially written internship guidebook to help you structure your goals and organise your learning.
You will also get full support completing your university paperwork and placement hours. You will receive your assignment details and full orientation when you arrive, including details of where you'll be going, how to get there and who will be looking after you.
You will be given the same priority, care and package as our professional Medi Trippers, including airport pick up, accommodation and supervision.
