If your passion is medicine then this is a great opportunity to further your knowledge and gain practical experience. The time you spend on this project will be of huge benefit for when you go to medical school or to help you secure a place studying medicine at university.
You will be working in several of Ulaanbaatar's leading hospitals under expert supervision. On arrival in Ulaanbaatar, an introductory session will cover basic professional skills as well as Mongolian attitudes and ideas. You'll leave after experiencing medicine in the most remote city on earth and gaining valuable insight into rural community issues.
You will be taken to Terelj National Park where you will be able to see wild horses and ride a camel. The sights are spectacular! You will also get to experience a traditional Mongolian barbecue, which is a great time to socialise with the other volunteers and local staff.
This placement is fully researched, safety audited and risk assessed in accordance with the British Standard BS8848 for the Adventure Travel Sector.
