Based in the capital, this is a small nonprofit business serving local people through medical education and healthcare delivery. As well as teaching medical subjects, it teaches general English, mainly to medical students, so that they can then access the huge resources available in English. In a country with some of the worst healthcare outcomes in the world outside of Africa, creating competent healthcare services that are available to all starts with training a new generation of doctors more effectively. You will work with local medical students to inspire and teach, and prepare them for rural service in their early years post-university. Longer-term workers will be able to follow these relationships into the field, continue training and/or work to pioneer healthcare services that will be models for wider implementation. English teachers do not need medical experience, as they are teaching general English. However, there are options to teach more specialized language or vocabulary. Teachers should be energetic and fun loving, to motivate and inspire students.
