Grab this opportunity to further develop your skills through the Nursing and Midwifery internships of Projects Abroad. Your placement will depend largely on your experience or amount of training.

Nursing internships are available in Accra, at Danquah Circle - a large Police hospital in a local neighborhood. Midwifery internships will be at the Sakumono Community Hospital, a small local hospital specializing in surgical and maternity care.

In Cape Coast, the Central Regional Hospital has positions available for nursing and midwifery interns. It is one of the most modern hospitals in Ghana with a wide range of departments and lots of new equipment.

If you don’t have medical experience, you will be placed in Dodowa to ensure you receive instruction and supervision through observation. If you are a professional with considerable experience, you will be placed in Cape Coast and assist with treatments. If you don’t have full qualifications but have experience, you can work at either locations.


In Koforidua, the city's regional hospital is a large state-run hospital that offers placements to anyone with skills or an interest in Physical Therapy, Nursing, Midwifery, and Dentistry

In the semi-rural Akuapem Hills, the hospital is smaller, but still has a range of different departments where interns can work. Small village clinics in Ghana often lack even basic healthcare facilities, so you the hospital services a large and any many of the patients will have travelled a long way to reach a hospital with the facilities they need.

In Kumasi, medical interns work in one of six busy city hospitals serving between them over 1.5 million people. You can focus on a range of specialties, including Nursing, Midwifery, and Dentistry.
