More photos from this internship can be found here.

Interns with Child and Family Health International (CFHI) in Tanzania complete rotations in a variety of clinical and community care facilities.  This program offers the unique opportunity to interact with health professionals at the regional, district, and rural levels. Interns will split their days. In the morning, they will have clinical rotations at a regional hospital and rural health centers and take part in community-based public health initiatives. In the afternoons, interns will work with a local grassroots non-profit organization working to educate and empower the caretakers of children orphaned by HIV/AIDS. Interns will work on caretaker-focused initiatives for women in the community, through health and life skills workshops. Programs are aimed at improving the lives of the women, and by extension, the orphans and vulnerable children in their care.  This is a great opportunity for students interested in pre-med, pre-nursing, pre-pharmacy, and public health.
