Hospital doctor shadowing & global health experience programs.
Medical placement programmes are not just for those who wish to study medicine, it is also useful if you are planning to go to university to study dentistry, nursing, physiotherapy or any other healthcare related field.
Which medical placement you choose is entirely up to you. Gap Medics takes care of all of your travel and accommodation requirements, so that’s not something you need to worry about. However, there are a few other factors that you may want to take into consideration when choosing a programme.
In addition to offering you a unique clinical experience, these placement programmes also offer you the unexpected opportunity to travel to exotic destinations where you can actually spend time with the locals, experience their culture and cuisine and also indulge in some exciting sightseeing. While a placement in Chiang Mai is an excellent option for scuba diving enthusiasts, Tanzania may be your preferred destination if going on an animal safari is something you’ve always dreamt about. For ski-lovers, a placement in the Czech Republic offers many opportunities to indulge in your favourite sport.
