The Work The World House
Much of your experience with us will center around the Work the World house. The house’s atmosphere is social — you’ll live with other healthcare students from other countries and other disciplines, so it will start to feel like home from day one.
The house is based in the north of the city, just a short walk from the Indian Ocean. The building itself is roomy and decorated with traditional Tanzanian carvings.
You have plenty of communal and private spaces, and there’s an outdoor pool to cool off in when the temperature rises. Take a short walk in the evening after placement, and you’ll find the seafront shops, bars and restaurants.
In the broader area, you can visit traditional craft markets, or catch a boat going on a snorkelling or whale-watching trip.
Management team: Based in the house, they oversee your entire Work the World experience — 24/7 — from the moment you land to the moment you leaveCatering team: cook a variety of both local cuisine and home comforts for breakfast, lunch and dinner. And don’t worry — they accommodate all dietary requirementsHousekeeper: keeps the house clean and tidy from top to bottom, making sure you're comfortableLanguage teacher: visits the house twice per-week. During their lessons, you’ll learn everyday phrases and clinical terminology to help you get more from your placementSecurity team: Monitor the house 24/7 for extra peace of mind
Support in the Hospital
Our in-country team will take you to your internship hospital before your placement begins. They’ll introduce you to department staff and your supervisors, making sure you know your way around ready for when you start.
The team will continue to stop by at the hospital throughout your placement. They’ll just want to be sure everything is aligned with your expectations at all levels.
We assign your clinical supervisors before you start your internship. Build rapport with them and they’ll give you an insider’s view on the local healthcare system.
The point of all the above is that we offer support throughout your clinical internship.

VILLAGE HEALTHCARE WEEK
In addition to your main internship in Dar es Salaam, you can spend an optional week in an African village community on the western side of the Uluguru Mountains. In the mornings, you’ll spend time in a busy primary healthcare clinic, seeing how local staff provide care in a rural setting. This makes the experience the perfect complement to your time in the city. In your free time, you’ll join in on many local activities — cycling through sugar cane plantations, visiting nearby waterfalls, visiting local primary schools, and learning traditional drumming and dancing.

"The hospital was really under resourced. The patients had to bring in their own equipment — catheters, sterile gloves, cord clamps…."
