Tribal Health Initiative welcomes students and young professionals to come and spend time with us. In the past we have had students staying for 4 – 6 weeks in order to fulfill curriculum requirements as well as some who spend time with us during their holidays. We can provide basic accommodation and food for a fee for up to 2 – 4 people at any given time. Do let us know about your visit well in advance so that we can better plan your stay. For foreign students , please email us – [email protected]
Please note that THI is an integrated community health project that goes much beyond just providing just medical services. We encourage students to explore all aspects of our various community initiatives. Medical students who come with the intention of only improving their clinical skills might be disappointed. Most of our staff are not familiar with English so if you do not speak Tamil then it might be a bit difficult having in depth conversations (though some students have surprised us and themselves with their instant Tamil and hand gesturing abilities).
Tribal Health Initiative is also a recognized center for junior doctors who have to serve Rural Bond Schemes from St. John’s Medical College, Bangalore and Mahatma Gandhi Institute of Medical Science, Wardha.
