Medical and Healthcare Work Experience Internship in Livingstone, Zambia

         

I cannot really pinpoint what has been the best bit of my placement, as everything has been really good. I had a warm welcome by the clinic and everyone has been friendly and helpful, so it has made the whole experience excellent!

I feel I am gaining more knowledge towards my nursing course. I am able to experience a wide variety of opportunities to do with the clinic. This has ranged from working with the different staff members, meeting different aged patients, seeing different problems/issues, taking part in the diagnosis and treatment, assisting with wound dressing, lab tests, helping inpatients and being able to go out to the villages with the clinic.

I would definitely recommend this placement to other health professionals, as you get a real insight into health care and you receive such a large variety of experiences. This placement would definitely suit health professionals or those that are training to do something involving healing/helping people.

The clinic is a worthwhile placement, being able to connect with the village people is amazing. The clinic is extremely beneficial if you’re in the health profession. I cannot think of anything else at present, it has been a great experience so far!

Can you describe a typical day?

I would get picked up from the backpackers at around 8.00 a.m. and usually arrive at the clinic before 9am.

I would be assigned to a member of staff to work with throughout the day. The duties would vary depending on who I worked with, but no matter who it was, I received the full benefit of their tasks and job.

You get to experience everything and anything possible, you can also ask what you would like to do and see and they put you in that environment.

I usually get picked back up around 4.00 p.m. The day goes pretty quickly and there is always something going on in the clinic.
