Volunteers, especially Nigerian medical and allied health professionals at home and abroad, can plan and take time off to volunteer in service to poor and rural communities, working with local people from the slums and rural areas of Nigeria. Alongside other volunteers, a volunteer supports patients seeking health care in communities, in local clinics and in local hospitals. This unique and caring program is open to Nigerians and non-Nigerians with an interest in health care, as well as medical students and professionals. The opportunity also provides experience in the following areas: Accident and Emergency, Anesthetics, Dentistry, General Surgery, Maternity and Midwifery, Nursing, Obstetrics and Gynecology, Occupational Therapy, Ophthalmology, Pediatrics, Pathology, Physiotherapy, and Ultrasound. As a volunteer caregiver, one is expected to perform basic duties such as checking a patient’s vital signs and treating minor wounds under the supervision of local doctors. Medical students can also shadow physicians at various hospitals and clinics as well as in rural and poor communities.
