Here are all the current paid and unpaid GLOBAL HEALTH opportunities that are on Handshake now–70 PAID and 30 more that are unpaid! So fear not, there is still time to secure that experience for the summer.
This will be the second iteration of this trip (the last one was WT 2018). The experience will be structured as internships for academic credit.
ROC has several years’ worth of history with this community in Ghana and works in partnership with local health leaders. Summerwood Dental Brigades will be providing dental services. Students will help to organize the dental and medical clinics (students will obviously not be providing any clinical services), and will also improve sanitation by constructing toilets for community use.
Interested? Come to the Information Session Friday, May 3
Friday, May 3, at 3:30 in Axinn 219.
Our goal is to make this experience accessible to everyone, regardless of personal financial circumstances; some scholarship funds will be available.
This trip is offered in partnership with Middlebury College’s Global Health Program.
