Hospital doctor shadowing & global health experience programs.
The annual Gap Medics Australia special starts on the 6th January 2013, a unique opportunity for pre-medical students from years 11 and 12 to gain relevant work experience and have a truly amazing and fully supported trip to Tanzania or Thailand.
If you are you thinking of applying to study medicine in the near future or have been accepted to medical school and want to get some real world experience of your subject then Gap Medics is absolutely the right choice for you!
From the 6th January 2013 we are inviting along Australian students for an amazing program of 2 to 4 week placements where you will spend your weekdays immersed in a working hospital environment learning from your Mentors, Doctors and Specialist’s as they go about their usual rounds, treatments and surgeries in the hospital.
Evenings and weekends are fun free time for you to relax, get to know your fellow students and enjoying the outstanding facilities at the Gap Medics student house.
Weekends are also spent enjoying the local culture and seeing the sites, how about a safari in some of Tanzania’s most breathtaking national parks.
Not only will a placement give you real world experience of life as a medical professional giving you a great head start in your studies and a huge advantage in med school applications but it will also provide an amazing opportunity for personal and professional development.
Increasing your confidence and independence and just having a fantastic travel experience along the way!
Spaces are very limited so if this is something you would like to be involved with a place can be reserved by completing the application form.
