MedicIndia is looking for your leadership skills! Besides being a participant
in the MedicIndia summer program, one can choose to apply for a site staff
position. The site staff will be designated to two first-year medical students who
are looking to take on a greater responsibility in the successful undertaking of
the group. There are two site staff positions
available. These two site leaders are responsible for the
planning and coordination of a trip. In addition, they will play a valuable and
critical link between the MedicIndia staff, New Civil Hospital, and the fellows.
Being a site leader
requires a passion to listen and accommodate. It will require a trusting,
open and cohesive environment. With help from
MedicIndia, the site staff will provide a general outline of retreats, rotations, and facilitate group discussions. Site
staff will be required to meet with site staff or MedicIndia from the previous
year to further understand the program. Each site
leader is integral in assuring that the participants are pushed and inspired. They must also make sure that there remains
a healthy group equilibrium.
The site staff will
face challenging situations where he or she may have to facilitate problems
within the group, amongst the community, and strive for “win-win” situations and
solutions. Complete guideline and requirements will be given to the site
leader upon acceptance.
The site staff position
is available to those who qualify for application to the MedicIndia M1 summer
program. In addition, MedicIndia is
looking for dedicated and passionate leaders whose experience and personalities
will contribute to the success of the year and experience.

site staff position, please complete extra questions on the application.
