Clinical volunteers


Pos+Abilities is looking for clinical volunteers who can commit approximately 3 months to assist children and families affected by disability. Physiotherapists, chiropractors, occupational therapists, nurses and prosthetists will find this the experience of a lifetime, working with multidisciplinary teams in rural and semi-rural clinics in northern Tanzania. We provide some assistance with travel and accommodation, and volunteers will work under the direction of a resident clinician/clinical instructor. Tanzania is a peaceful country with some of the most striking natural attractions in Africa – think of Mount Kilimanjaro and the Serengeti Plains. We have been working with local governments and communities for more than a decade, and have a great network to provide support for volunteers. These positions would especially suit new graduates and those looking for a short, but meaningful sabbatical from their normal clinical routine. Contact brian@globalpeacenetwork.ca
