While on placement in Dar Es Salaam you will have the opportunity to work in a government tertiary referral hospital and the local regional hospital too. Practises adopted by Tanzanian midwives are remarkably different to those in Australia, giving you ample chance to learn from different traditions and practises. You can also choose to specialize in neonatal intensive care and work with HIV positive mothers-to-be. Outside of hospital grounds you can head out on safari to spot big game.
