Fully immersed in a different culture, you will work alongside doctors and nurses in hospitals and clinics with very few resources. Living with local families in Cambodia or with biomedical engineering students from Makerere University in Uganda, learn a new language and gain valuable hands on experience. During weekends you are free to explore your chosen country.
