Global health interns.

Lend a Hand International is offering an internship program specifically designed for students in medical and public health programs at both undergraduate and graduate levels. These interns will have the opportunity to gain hands-on experience. Global Health interns will be placed based on qualifications, background, and project emphasis. Examples of project experience include: 

• Medical Job Shadowing: Hands-on clinical experience in a number of health centers varying in size, location, and patient demographics. Observe and assist medical professionals in patient assessment and treatment. Gain unique exposure to diseases, illnesses, and medical practices prevalent in third-world countries.
• Medical Administration and Operations: Assist in general clinic operations including record keeping, data management, patient registration systems, and organization of patients. Gain valuable experience from the unique opportunity to help a new health clinic in an impoverished rural village operate efficiently and effectively, ensuring that it can provide quality healthcare for years to come.
• Community Outreach: Work with local teams to help design and implement programs on the topics of HIV/AIDS, infectious diseases, water and sanitation, maternal and child health, family planning and nutrition. Assist in research and data collection related to these topics in preparation for effective community outreach programs. 

Interns will live with a host family and will be managed and supported by a Country Coordinator. This program is for applicants age 18 to 34 unless otherwise approved.
