On a midwifery elective in Dar Es Salaam, you'll have the opportunity to work in both a government tertiary referral hospital and the local regional hospital. Practises adopted by Tanzanian midwives here are dramatically different to those in the UK, giving your placement a completely unique quality. You can also choose to specialise in neonatal intensive care, or work with mothers who are HIV positive.
