The Healthcare Volunteering Project Uganda offers skilled medical professionals with the chance to experience a new culture and working environment, while learning and developing their specialized medical knowledge. The Healthcare Volunteering Project Uganda run by Ssamba Foundation is best suited to professional medical and medical students aiming to gain valuable experience in a medical hospital setting and learning more about tropical diseases.
Medical students gain practical medical and nursing experience as interns with our Uganda Medical internship placements. Ssamba Foundation is offering you the opportunity that will shoot your career to the moon by doing your medical or nursing internship in Uganda. This is a very unique opportunity to gain first-hand experience working in Uganda. You’ll also get to broaden your understanding of healthcare issues from another part of the world.
Your exact role within the hospital or clinic will be determined by your level of medical experience as well as by the enthusiasm and effort which you show to the local staff. Pre-university interns usually start by observing the doctors and nurses. You may find more practical opportunities arise once you get to know the local staff and if you can demonstrate a good understanding of local medical conditions.
Ssamba Foundation strives to improve the health conditions of children and adults in poor communities of Uganda through various medical and healthcare intervention projects including but not limited to Village Health Talks Outreaches (VHTO), Mobile Clinics Camps and so many other interventions.
Ssamba Foundation supports small community health centers in rural and hard to reach areas and also has a standing partnership with large government hospitals in Uganda. We offer short and long term medical volunteering placements in hospitals, clinics, outreach centres and mobile clinics.
Placements are available in areas of Dentistry, HIV & AIDS, Medicine, Midwifery, Nursing, Pharmacy, Physiotherapy, Psychology, Radiography and Veterinary, which ever you choose you will be provided with the best tools so that you can do your job as best as possible.
If you are currently studying or recently graduated we have medical volunteering projects and internships which will boost your resume / CV and allow you to help people in the developing world. Lots of people apply every year and this Uganda medical volunteering project is perfect if you are planning a career in medical services.

- This Healthcare Volunteering Project Uganda, will take you to the heart of Uganda where you get involved in meaningful volunteer work. We ask volunteers interested in the Uganda volunteer work to commit at least twelve weeks (3 months) in order to ensure a worthwhile experience. But we accept volunteers from a minimum of 4 weeks’ duration. We understand that it can sometimes be difficult for doctors, to take a full month off. Therefore, doctors can come for a three-week period.
