Why not combine your traveling plans with medical work experience this Autumn? Gap Medics are holding an Australian Autumn Special in Thailand this year for potential medical students!

This two-week work experience programme will introduce you to the working world of doctors! You  will be able to shadow these medical professionals in hospitals close to our very own Gap Medics house. You can expect to attend ward rounds in internal medicine, check childrens vital statistics in pediatrics, observe 554513_10200793753788694_1509650451_n.jpgbirths in obstetrics and gynecology and view some really fascinating operations in surgery!

What’s more is you get to stay in our own private house, which is fully staffed from housekeepers to caterers who provide all your meals for you, as well as our dedicated programme managers who assist in making sure your hospital placement is well structured and well run. We also have our own swimming pool in the Gap Medics house, which is perfect for relaxing after your placement.

Evenings and weekends are your free time and there are many activities you can be involved in. You can visit the vibrant city of Chiang Mai for a spot of shopping in the local markets to buy gifts and souvenirs. Also animal lovers can visit ‘Tiger Kingdom’ just outside town, where you can have your photo taken with real live tigers! Thrilling stuff! We also offer a full weekend Hill Tribe Trek where you can jump on the back of an elephant, build a bamboo raft, zip line over the jungle and even have a go at white water rafting – this is not for the faint hearted!
