Volunteers for Peace Vietnam (VPV) is a non profit NGO on the flied of cultural, internship and volunteer exchange. We start working sicne 2005. Annually there are 500 international interns/volunteer are coming to join different project of VPV/ Also 50 Vietnamese volunteers are doing abroad to do volunteer services.
The aim of the program is to provide skilled medical professionals and students the chance to experience a new culture and working environment while still learning and developing their specialized medical knowledge at the same time. Interns get the chance to gain a greater understanding of differences between medical systems in developed and developing countries.Interns will be placed with a local Doctor and/or Nurse who will guide them to different tasks and activities at the placement. As an intern, you will not be expected or allowed to partake in serious procedures. However, depending on level of experience, participants may observe operations, provide assistance in basic procedures and visit patients – before and after surgery as well as any other tasks offered or required by the local staff. While participants are always encouraged by local staff to see and learn as much as possible, they are also very interested to gain a better understanding of medical work in your country and in particular, learn about the similarities and differences. This is an interesting type of specialized cultural exchange where both participants and local staff can learn a lot from each other and develop themselves through greater knowledge and understanding. The timetable will be given on arrival with volunteers working 5 days a week (Saturday and Sunday off). Working Depend on the experience of participant, they will be paced in a suitable hospital
Interns will stay in a dormitory, sharing rooms with volunteers of other nationalities joining the same program. Normally, rooms are arranged with about 2-6 volunteers per room.
