MUSTANGH Foundation created the unique possibility to offer an elective medical internship of 18 weeks in the WGH for 6th year medical students of the Faculty of Health, Medicine and Life Sciences (FHML) in Maastricht, the Netherlands. Students will learn to work in a rural hospital and thus learn to take responsibility and to trust their own knowledge and (medical) skills.
Besides this unique experience for the students, the presence of these students will create the possibility of the exchange of knowledge between the students and the WGH staff.
The brain drain in the West Gonja District causes a shortage of doctors in this region. The presence of these final year medical students may release some of the shortage in medical doctors.
Finally, we would like to train hospital staff members in order to take the provided health care to the next level. Also, by sponsoring education, we aim to bind staff members to the WGH.
With the financial, material and human resources, the foundation aims to improve the healthcare offered at the WGH and the surrounding facilities.
Development within MUSTANGH Foundation
MUSTANGH offers students the possibility to develop by offering positions within the MUSTANGH board and the MUSTANGH committees. By joining MUSTANGH Foundation, students can grow on both a personal and intellectual level by developing skills like communication, organisation and collaboration.
