Volunteer Student Placement: Ongoing
Volunteer Student Placement
Doctors of the World UK is part of the global Médecins du Monde network, which delivers over 400 projects in 80 countries through 3,000 volunteers. In the UK we provide primary health care and advocacy from a drop-in clinic in east London, supporting some of the societies most vulnerable and marginalised people to access mainstream health services.
Over the coming years, we plan to develop and expand our services to meet growing demand. We believe that every person has the right to primary health care and will advocate tirelessly on behalf of those facing barriers, whether they are vulnerable migrants, sex workers or people with no fixed address.
Our services are staffed by volunteer support workers, caseworkers, nurses, and doctors. These volunteers provide a highly empathetic and practical service to our service users, making a real difference to people’s lives.
Our effective, committed and enthusiastic team is looking to incorporate new volunteers. If you are passionate about access to healthcare and enjoy working in a team on often complex and challenging cases, then you should consider becoming a Doctors of the World volunteer!
Those with lived experience of migration, the asylum system, homelessness or exclusion from health services are encouraged to apply.
