Position: Medical Assistant

Summary

Volunteer Interns will be assigned to a specific hospital or outpatient care center. They will report to that organization’s Volunteer Coordinator, as well as to other Selfless Solutions’ staff members that are assigned to them (together “Reports”). Reports will help guide the work of Volunteer Interns and collaborate with them to accomplish the tasks which they are given, as well as those which they create for themselves through dialogue with Reports and other staff.

Although Volunteer Interns will be given direction, they are expected to be self-motivated, creative, and proactive. Through dialogue, they should seek to collaboratively identify what needs to be done to further the Healthcare Project/partner organizations’ goals, and then take initiative to co-create and execute strategies to address those needs. This should include project development efforts (fundraising, partnerships, etc.) in addition to the day-to day assistance and learning with medical staff. The Volunteer Intern position is not for those who are looking for a vacation, or for those who must be hand-held and told exactly what to do at all times.

The Selfless Solutions’ Volunteer Internship Program is for those who are serious about co-creating positive change in the world using a method founded on mutual respect, humility, and love.

Placement Overview

Selfless Solutions partners with organizations in Sub-Saharan Africa to generate the resources and expertise necessary to effectively address needs in their communities.

Our Healthcare Project is an initiative based in Arusha, Tanzania with the mission of providing all residents with access to healthcare services that at least meet minimum standard of care requirements established in developed countries.

To fulfill this mission, Selfless Solutions recruits dedicated Volunteer Interns to work with our local partners on the ground to improve and grow the initiative. This enables our Healthcare Project to reach more people, while also better addressing the needs of the people it already serves.
