Global Medicare’s Health Programs offer an amazing internship/volunteer opportunity for pre-med students, nurses and medical professionals aiming at providing them valuable career experience and skills while understanding the health conditions and medical practices in a developing country as Cameroon. Each week intern/volunteer spend on our program; they have the opportunity to observe in a new and exciting specialty department. Spending time in the wards and operating rooms is just a part of the rewarding pre-medical experience abroad.

In Cameroon, access to basic healthcare is one of the most challenging issues facing low-income population. The large majority of patients arrive due to illnesses related to poor sanitation. Malaria is also a huge issue and remains the cause of many illnesses and death.

You will work alongside doctors, nurses and the local staff at the hospitals and clinics to provide quality care to patients.

Completing our internship program can give you the experience and confidence you need to pursue your chosen career in the health sector. Participants applying for this program must be professionals in this field or otherwise students currently studying courses related to medicine.
