Hospital doctor shadowing & global health experience programs.
We are looking for outstanding, candid photos from your Gap Medics trip, across four categories:
Any photo of yourself and/ or other Gap Medics students on placement at one of our partner hospitals.
Photo submissions for this category could include photos of yourself and/ or your fellow housemates and/ or staff enjoying the house, garden or food.
Photos in this category can include any activities that you participated in, or sites you visited in outside of the house and hospital.
Videos should be two-three minutes, long, and should focus on life in the hospital, the house and travel in the local area.
You can enter as many categories as you like – and as many photos per category as you like.
The winner of each category will win a Gap Medics hoody, and the overall winner will receive a free, two-week placement in Tanzania.
