Aug 1st - 28th - West Bank of Palestine, in the cities of Abu Dis and Bethlehem.

Refugee Camp Project (ReCaP) is a collaborative project run by the IPPNW and IFMSA-Palestine for medical students to spend a month in Palestine learning about the lives and healthcare needs of refugees affected by the ongoing conflict. Participants spend the 1st week learning about the historic and contemporary facts of the conflict, followed by a 3 week medical internship. The hope is to empower participants to in turn educate others on the truths they have learned and to act as advocates, whilst working together with Palestinian coordinators to continue and expand the ReCaP project for future years.

 Participants must have completed 2 years of medical school

Fee: covered by the IPPNW Germany. Students must pay for their own transport to Palestine

Deadline: March 20th, 2017 at 23:59 pm CEST
