RCPCH Global Links Volunteer Programme
RCPCH is recruiting doctors for 6 to 12 month clinical placements in hospitals across five partner countries: Kenya, Uganda, Ghana, Nigeria and Sierra Leone. The programme supports child health through training and mentoring local staff and transferring life-saving skills.
