As a Medical volunteer in Romania you will be based in a day care centre where volunteers help with the treatment of the children.
Volunteers joining the Medicine project at the day care centre work with children aged from one up to 18 years old. The centre receives about 30 children each day and they have a variety of conditions from treatable physical disabilities to Downs Syndrome.
The centre offers a variety of treatments to the children including physiotherapy, massage, educational programmes, kinetotherapy, psychological treatment and speech therapy. The centre is keen to have up to four volunteers, with each volunteer specialising in one of the following areas: Orthopedics, Paediatrics, Physiotherapy, Psychiatry or Psychotherapy. Please let us know which areas you would like to work in when you apply.
Volunteer abroad on a Medical Project in Romania
On arrival you will be introduced to your supervisor, you will work closely with them and have regular meetings about treatment options, recovery methods and procedures. Your exact role will depend upon your specific skills and experience. Volunteers initially shadow the local staff; however, if you show enthusiasm and a good level of knowledge you could have a more hands on role. You could help arrange and evaluate the patient’s treatment programme; implementing new ideas and methods to aid their recovery.
