Interns with Child and Family Health International (CFHI) in South Africa complete rotations in a variety of clinical and non-profit care facilities. Applicants spend five weeks in Durban and five weeks in Cape Town. The rotation sites in Durban are focused on HIV/AIDS and its impact on the health system, while the rotations in Cape Town are more focused on health care challenges in general. Students in Durban will experience a wider range of health facilities including hospices, teaching hospitals and public and private clinics. In Cape Town, students will spend their time primarily within two major urban hospitals and their associated township clinics, getting familiar with the different wards within these two large medical systems. This is a great opportunity for students interested in pre-med, pre-nursing, pre-pharmacy, and public health.
