Is a Medicine internship in Mongolia for teenagers right for me?

If you are a teenager thinking about a career in medicine, then our Medicine High School Special in Mongolia is for you!

You’ll gain medical work experience as you observe doctors in a hospital setting, and assist them during community outreaches. This will add value to your CV, and give you unique, interesting points to talk about in applications and interviews.

You don’t need experience to join us. We’ll teach you everything you need to know, and Projects Abroad staff are there to guide and support you every step of the way. However, please be aware that if you're 15 years old by the time you fly to Mongolia, you need to be accompanied by an adult.

This High School Special runs over fixed dates in the summer and follows a set itinerary with social activities and a weekend trip added. You pick the dates that fit your schedule. You’ll work and explore Mongolia with a group, along with constant supervision from our staff.

What will I be doing during the Medicine internship for high school students?

In Mongolia, you’ll shadow doctors at hospitals and get practical experience at community outreaches. Here are a few of the tasks you’ll be involved in:


  • Shadow and observe doctors and nurses on their rounds at a local hospital
  • Attend medical training workshops and learn basic healthcare skills
  • Complete basic health checks during a community outreach, under the supervision of medical staff
  • Experience Mongolian culture and explore with interns your own age

At a Medicine placement in Mongolia for high school students, your work will be split into four areas:


Shadow and observe doctors and nurses on their rounds at a local hospital


There are many hospitals in the city, each of varying sizes. You’ll have the opportunity to work in several of them. You’ll shadow doctors and nurses at each of these hospitals. They’ll teach you about the diseases and conditions you’ll see, and explain how they diagnose and treat them. We encourage you to ask questions and take notes about what you see.


Attend medical training workshops and learn basic healthcare skills


As part of your project, we have organised training sessions for you and the other interns. During these sessions, you’ll learn basic medical skills. You’ll be taught how to:


  • Measure blood pressure and blood sugar
  • Clean and dress minor wounds
  • Prepare injection
  • Perform basic CPR


Complete basic health checks during a community outreach


After you are confident in the new skills you have learned, you’ll be able to put them into practice. Under the supervision of qualified staff, you’ll be able to complete basic health screenings during medical outreaches. This is important work, as you’ll be doing health checks for people who usually have no access to medical services.


Experience Mongolian culture and explore with interns your own age


You’ll live with a local host family, and have constant support from your supervisors during your stay in Mongolia. When you aren’t working, we’ve organised social and cultural activities to keep you busy. In addition, you’ll go on an exciting weekend trip to the famous Chinggis Khan statue and the Terelj National Park. You’ll even get to sing your heart out during karaoke and eat your fill of Mongolian BBQ!


Where in Mongolia will I be working?

Ulaanbaatar

You’ll live and work with other teenagers in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia’s capital city.


This industrialised city is a striking contrast to the open plains that make up most of Mongolia. There are fast food joints next to high-end clothing stores, and museums down the road from karaoke bars. Through the chaotic traffic and constant busy air, Ulaanbaatar will never fail to excite and intrigue you! 


As a medical intern, you’ll work at several hospitals throughout the city. You’ll also take part in community outreaches in disadvantaged areas. Projects Abroad staff will be with you at all times.

Pick up all'aeroporto, voli e visti

Al tuo arrivo in aeroporto, un membro dello Staff di Projects Abroad sarà lì ad aspettarti. Per maggiori informazioni su arrivo, orientamento e visti visita la pagina Procedure di Arrivo per la Mongolia.


What are the aims and impact of this Medicine internship in Mongolia for teenagers?

The aim of this internship is to provide medical work experience for teenagers in Mongolia. This will help you decide if medicine is the right career for you. We give you the opportunity to do this by having you shadow doctors on their rounds at a hospital. This will give you a better idea of what it’s like to be a doctor.


In Mongolia, basic medical services are not always available in disadvantaged areas. We’re working to change this by going out into these communities and doing free basic health checks. You’ll be part of this work, and we’ll teach you basic medical skills. These include measuring blood pressure and blood sugar levels.


Outreach work not only gives you the opportunity to do hands-on work under supervision, it also demonstrates your commitment to helping people in need. This is an important aspect of a medical career. 


Join a medical internship for teenagers in Mongolia, and gain medical work experience while giving back to disadvantaged communities.

Misurare il nostro impatto

Ogni anno, migliaia di giovani volontari che partecipano ai nostri Campi di Volontariato per Studenti delle Scuole Superiori fanno la differenza in tutto il mondo. Durante il loro periodo all’estero, contribuiscono al raggiungimento di obiettivi a lungo termine e ad avere un impatto positivo nelle comunità locali.

Per documentare i risultati raggiunti grazie al loro aiuto, elaboriamo un rapporto annuale chiamato High School Specials Impact Report. Scopri di più sull'impatto dei nostri progetti e leggi l'ultimo report.


Vitto e alloggio

Condividerai l'alloggio con gli altri volontari e stagisti di Projects Abroad ad Ulaanbaatar. Questa è una bella opportunità per conoscere meglio volontari e stagisti da tutto il mondo, condividere esperienze ed esplorare i dintorni insieme durante il tempo libero.

Nei nostri programmi per Studenti delle Scuole Superiori, cerchiamo sempre di accomodare nella stessa stanza due o più volontari dello stesso sesso e di età simile. La tua stanza sarà modesta, ma confortevole, pulita e sicura.

La quota del programma include tre pasti al giorno.
