Is a Nursing internship in Togo right for me?

Our Nursing internships in Togo are designed to help you learn about nursing and improve your skills.  We have different options available, depending on your level of experience.

Pre-university students

Interns with no experience in nursing are welcome to join us.  You will work with doctors and nurses in small private clinics.  Here you can observe and learn from consultations and minor surgeries. There is also the option to work at HIV/AIDS centres, which give free treatment and consultations to patients. Here you can help to raise awareness and teach about safety, acceptance and tolerance.

University Students

Interns who have some experience and are already studying nursing, work at one of two public hospitals. There is the opportunity to work in a variety of departments such as paediatrics or obstetrics.

In all cases you’ll work alongside a qualified supervisor.  They will be on hand to offer support and guidance during your placement.

As a nursing intern, you will see a wide variety of treatments and also provide much-needed support to patients. The hospitals and clinics where we work provide an excellent backdrop for learning and improving your nursing and healthcare skills.

Interns on all medical related projects in Togo need a good level of French. Most of the staff and patients do not speak English and it is vital that you can understand and communicate in French while you are working in the hospital.

Professional volunteers and medical electives for students

This project is also ideally suited to professionals interested in using their skills to help, as well as university medical and healthcare elective students.

As a professional, you can be sure we will match your training and expertise to the placement where you are needed most. With your support, we can make an even bigger impact on the local communities we work with.

If you are an elective student, we will organise an elective placement where you can learn as much as possible. We want you gain the knowledge and skills that will begin to shape your professional career.
