This placement is the perfect placement for students of a medical background. The hospital is based in Goa. Depending on experience and confidence levels, you will be issued with a day-to-day role at the hospital, with trained English speaking-staff available at all times. After your orientation week, a formal introduction will be held on your first day at the project. During this day, you will be educated on the history of the hospital and also discuss your direct role during your internship. All participants will spend their first few days shadowing a local (English Speaking) doctor or nurse. During this time, participants will further their understanding of the nature of the hospital and the standard practices of the Indian medical world. Upon completion of your shadowing experience, you will become a regular member of staff, with genuine duties and roles to perform. The hospital is equipped with an x-ray room, operating theatre, and A&E room, an adult patient’s room, a child patient’s room and a critical ward. Participants will be able to work in all different areas or may choose to focus upon one area for the entirety of their stay. After your first week, you will have a feedback session, during which you can suggest ways to improve the functioning of the hospital and share your ideas and findings with the local staff.
About the Accommodation : In our center, there is a mini library, a dining room, a lounge area where you can hang out with fellow participants and a beautiful garden to relax.

You can also use the kitchen facilities to cook for yourself or eat out at any of the local restaurants.
