Health care placements

We recruit skilled professionals to support our partner organisations in Africa and Asia. Placements cover a range of sectors and professions, and our partners often need development workers with skills in health care to support their work. 


In 2010, we recruited an Occupational Therapist for the Ministry of Health in Lesotho, a Medical Doctor for an International Health NGO and a Clinical Psychologist for a Mental Health Hospital in Tanzania. 


What will you get out of a placement with Skillshare International?
