Healthcare Education in Bali

If you are a qualified medical practitioner or a person looking for a career in medicine, this is the program you need to choose in this amazing location!
    Overview icon

    Overview

    Our healthcare education initiative is in its infancy and requires the skills of both established medical and healthcare professionals and those who are interested in teaching basic first-aid and personal hygiene. This need for having project participants on either end of the medical spectrum arises due to the great extremes in hygiene and health practices. Apart from needing qualified professionals in order to conduct health camps and dental checkups, we also need participants who can educate people in the areas of basic first-aid and personal hygiene such as washing hands, brushing teeth and general cleanliness. This works towards the prevention of many avoidable health problems and easily communicable diseases.

    If you are interested in education and simple hygiene techniques, you are welcome to join the newly established Healthcare Education project. Medical professionals who can offer guidance on the project’s development would be immensely valuable, however, it is not imperative that participants have a medical background to join. As a participant of this project, you can support to run healthcare campaigns in local schools around Ubud, actively teach the importance of basic hygiene – emphasize brushing teeth correctly, washing hands and general body cleanliness. Many of the daily routines that we carry out without thinking are not common practices with the children you will meet, but starting simple education early can go a long way for immediate and future healthcare. If you have a medical background, check-up clinics for local children and adults can be organized with your help.

    The action plan will be confirmed again every Friday.

      On the first day of your project which falls on a Monday, you will attend a meeting with the Medical Officer after your breakfast to understand about the nature of the health issues and to get a short training where you will learn what is required to be done. After the meeting, you can prepare for the activities until lunchtime. After lunch, you will visit a local school where you will be able to organize the activities you have planned in an interesting way so that the children will learn from you easily. Once you return from school, you can share your feedback and experiences with us and call it a day.

      On this project, you will be spending about one to two hours each morning preparing lessons and about two to three hours in the afternoon teaching at a local elementary or high school/university. It is entirely up to you to decide what you are going to teach. However, we will provide you with examples of what previous participants have done and that will be helpful for you to start with.
