Clinical electives and volunteer placements in Morocco
We can arrange elective placements, internships and volunteer placements at three private clinics in Tangier/Morocco.
Clinique Assalam is the private clinic of highest standards in Tangier. It was founded in 2007 by 6 doctors of Moroccan origin who had all studied in Belgium and whose vision it was to establish a clinic of European standard in Tangier: Dr. Takkal and Dr. Shergi who are general surgeons, Dr. Mansur and Dr. Akalay who are traumatologists, Dr. Zaidi who is a cardiologist, and Dr. Ktari who is an anaesthesist. They are offering permanent service of their specialties at the clinic. There are further doctors employed at the clinic that offer permanent services in neurosurgery, urology, ENT, pediatrics, gynaecology, general medicine & emergencies. All of these services have patients at all times.
Some other specialists are attending the clinic on certain hours per week, offering the services of orthopedics, nephrology and dialisis, and ophthalmology.
There are three surgery theatres. Around 400 children are born every year at the clinic.
The clinic has a total of 30 beds for inward patients on three floors, all of them being single or double rooms. There is food supply service.
Students will be under the supervision of one of the clinic’s doctors who can assign them small tasks depending on the interns’ knowledge. The hospital is not an accredited teaching hospital of any university, but they have a few Moroccan medical students for electives.
Most of the doctors can speak English; all of them speak French, some speak Spanish. Most of the nurses can speak French, but not English, some speak Spanish. Language skills of the patients are like in Moroccan society (native language Darija/Arabic, people of better education speak French and in Tangiers many speak Spanish).
French language skills are of advantage, but not a requirement.
Students and volunteers will interact with the staff and patients alike.
Students and volunteers usually work from 9-12 and from 14-18 hours, but it is also possible to start earlier. You should bring your own medical coat and trousers; special surgery cloths will be provided and washed by the hospital. The clinic is open 365 days per year, internships/volunteering is possible throughout the year.
Besides Clinique Assalam we can also arrange electives and volunteer placement at Clinique Tingis and Clinique Sidi Amar.
