Calling Medical Volunteers for Africa
Imaging the World has been taking volunteers to Africa almost from the start, 10 years ago. We have placed practicing and retired medical professionals at rural health clinics. We have taken medical students, supervised their research and helped them publish and present their findings. We have brought premed students looking to gain international experience before applying to medical school.
Now we have formalized this volunteer activity under the name of Medical Journeys so we can bring more volunteers to Uganda and possibly other countries in the future.
Following an application process, Medical Journeys works with volunteers to place them in a clinic where their skills fill existing needs. Once in-country, Imaging the World Africa staff will greet volunteers, take them to their placements and provide assistance during each volunteer’s stay. Travel within Uganda, housing and meals are all arranged for volunteers.
Volunteer opportunities are available to practicing and retired medical professionals, current medical students, non-students seeing to apply to medical school and students in premed Bachelor programs.
We hope you’ll consider joining Imaging the World and Medical Journeys in Uganda soon. More information, including costs and application, are available on the Medical Journeys Website.
