    • Helping in wound management, dressing, and evaluation of healing,

    •  I.V. cannulation and fluid administration

  • Aid in history taking, interviewing, arriving at diagnoses, creating a nursing plan and executing it. Participants are advised to collaborate in patient assessment with doctors and other nursing staff.

  • Assist with patient resuscitation with up to date protocols.

  • Preventing pressure sores: a grave concern in our hospitals.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY

Mark Thomas, New York Universtiy - Dental, Indonesia

I gained so much experience and confidence after working with EI. Managed to rotate in all departments ranging from Oral Surgery to Endodontic, Prosthodontics to Pediatric Dentistry.

Mary Fields, University of Southampton - Midwifery, Kenya 

Elective International has a great program in Kenya, hands down. I wasn’t expecting to get nearly as much work as I did but was in for a shock.  The midwifery program exposed me to so much I wouldn’t have learned if I hadn’t chosen Kenya as an elective destination.

Anne Riordan, University of Dublin - Medicine Elective

The EI staff is a friendly and supportive bunch who do a first-rate job of making sure people like myself who don’t travel a lot feel right at home.
