New Medical Internship In South Africa

Posted by Randy LeGrant | Jul 28, 2019 8:50:56 AM

But that's not the BEST part!  The hospital where medical and pharmacy interns will practice on this medical internship in South Africa, is a five-hour drive from Johannesburg to Hoedspruit, a small rural town just outside of Kruger National Park.  You will live at a lodge that prepares breakfast, lunch and dinner for you each day and it comes with a driver who will drive you to the hospital each day and back again.  The lodge comes with a swimming pool and a deck where you can spot big game from time to time.

This is a perfect internship for medical interns ... whether you're a nursing student or a pharmacy major.  There is an opportunity to spend time with some HIV centers that are responsible for the distribution and care of rural communities and mange their anti retroviral medication.  There are also opportunities in a private facility as well to get exposure to that environment.  With an ideal number of medical and pharmacy interns, there can be 3 rotations for the interns to split the group into smaller groups and rotate from a grass roots program to a state hospital to a private company.
