Due to a distinct lack of resources, your placement in Takoradi will teach you to learn new skills and adapt to the fast-paced environment. You'll also have the choice of working across a whole range of departments including NICU, orthopaedics, emergency and OBG. Adventurers are sure to consider Ghana a paradise, with forest canopy walks, expansive national parks, and beautiful waterfalls in the Volta region. Read what our students think below!

My placement was in Accident and Emergency for 3 weeks, which was an unbelievable experience. My supervisor was phenomenal - an amazing teacher. I saw many things I will never forget, and which have forever left an impact on the way I will practice medicine in the future, both at home and abroad.

It is best to start your placement with no pre judgements. You have to remember that you're still a student and you need to build a rapport with the staff before you can dive in and do what you want on the wards.
