Midwifery Electives to Kenya

Obstetrics and Gynecology is one of the busiest departments in the hospitals we work with. Our students provide much-needed assistance to the local medical staff. 

Your placement will see you working side by side with midwives caring for new parents and premature babies. This is a fantastic opportunity for students looking to gain experience in their field and see what it is like to work in facilities so different from those you are used to in the UK. You’ll be exposed to a different perspective on how to approach unique cases and be exposed to new situations and procedures.

Key Aspects of Midwife Elective Placement

  • A bespoke placement

We go the extra mile to ensure each midwifery elective is tailored to the individual. We work with prospective participants to design their own program and meet their university’s requirements.

  • Supervision and mentoring

You will work hand in hand with qualified midwives and mentors at the health facilities of placement to ensure that you experience real life practical and supervised midwifery placement in a unique healthcare setting.

  • Differentiated healthcare system

Interacting with extensive prenatal, childbirth and postnatal cases while utilizing limited resources; both human capital and infrastructure is a life-changing opportunity for your professional growth.

  • Split placement

We pride ourselves in being one of the few organizations that offer split placements. You can be placed in two different hospitals in the same location, within two different cities to enhance your experience!

  • Interactive Global Health Tutorials

An opportunity to learn and share on different health care perspectives with other students and local midwives is always rewarding. We organize interactive sessions that provide you with the opportunity to discuss and ask pertinent questions regarding the healthcare system in your placement location as well as share on the distinguishing healthcare characteristics unique to your home country and other places across the globe.
