Dental/Pre dental and nursing volunteering
Are you a dentist, nurse or a student in any of this? Here is what you wiil do by volunteering abroad
The hospitals where DGV will refer you to volunteer are often understaffed and needs extra hands on the deck and this is where you come. Bring your expertise as a dentist to care and treat ailing patients in the hospitals with Kenya and Rwanda to Practice and build your skills. Among the activities you will be engaged during the period include recording the patients’ medical history, extraction, cleaning, and minor operations.
As a medical volunteer in other fields, you may be involved in giving vaccines, HIV testing, offering checkups and checking Vital. That will provide you with the opportunity to experience the medical sector back in your home country as well as what takes place in the developing nations.
All these activities will depend on the particular placement as each institution is unique and there are laws governing the scope of the intern/student /professional medical practitioner.
