As with any job – and especially in the field of medicine – you must prove yourself to be trustworthy before you are given responsibilities.

The hospital’s facilities are basic and the treatment standards will probably be different from what you’re used to. You should be prepared to see some shocking cases and try not to get emotionally involved with the patients. Normal working hours are from Sunday to Friday from 8am to 12pm. Many of the doctors do not work in the afternoons though it is sometimes possible to arrange extra hours from 2pm to 5pm to help the nurses or do additional work with patients.

The children at the center are very vulnerable and require constant care.

The physical therapy department has scheduled children to spend quality time in the physical therapy room as often as possible. Each child has different needs: some are learning to walk while others suffer from muscular problems. Other children need to have their joints massaged regularly to maintain their physical health. Extra assistance from interns with these tasks will allow more children to use the room and get treatment on a regular basis.
