Volunteer as a medical assistant!
We work with Red Cross hospitals in Japan and have partnerships where volunteer Medical Assistants provide help to nursing and administrative staff. Medical Assistants help in the wards, care for patients, befriend them and assist nurses and other staff with their daily tasks. These placements are ideal for anyone seeking a career in medicine or nursing as the Assistants work in many different departments including Maternity, Pediatrics, Geriatrics, Surgery and the Emergency Room and are exposed to all facets of medical life. You may also be asked to help teach English to the nursing staff and in turn the hospital will offer Japanese lessons.
