Join this Global Health Internship program and learn about how Ghana is working to improve quality healthcare for children throughout the country.
The Pediatric Care and Reproductive Health program provides participants the opportunity to gain firsthand experience in maternal and pediatric health care, providing clinical rotations in the only hospital in Ghana that is dedicated solely to pediatric care. Join local medical professionals in the historic Children’s Hospital in Accra, and see firsthand the various factors that directly affect the health of Ghanaian children. Participants in this program will grow to understand the social and economic conditions that have continued to impact the health of children, with malaria, anemia, and malnutrition the leading contributors to childhood morbidity in Ghana. Additionally, students have the opportunities to rotate through specialized clinics and work with nonprofit organizations focused on family planning, and sexual and reproductive health programming in the country.
