Hospital doctor shadowing & global health experience programs.
Beginning this June, Gap Medics is pleased to welcome hopeful doctors, nurses, dentists and midwives from international schools around the world to our Mid-Year Special. Students will shadow highly skilled health professionals at one of our dedicated partner hospitals in Poland or Croatia. On top of shadowing in the wards and operating rooms of a variety of exciting hospital departments, students will immerse themselves in the study of global health and gain first-hand experience for their applications and interviews.
Choose a program of one to eight weeks in length beginning any Sunday in:
Students aged 16 or 17
At our base in the capital city of Warsaw, students in Poland are able to learn about modern medicine in Europe from within one of its most beautiful and historic cities. Our partner hospital in Warsaw has advanced facilities and caters primarily toward non-communicable conditions—there will be plenty to see in the operating rooms here! During your free time, you can catch a local band playing in one of Warsaw’s beautiful parks, explore the city’s famous architecture and museums or relax at a local cafe.
Students aged 18 and older
Dive into healthcare from the Croatian city of Pula, which features beautiful views of Adriatic Sea and a wealth of European culture. Our partner hospital in Pula is technologically advanced and offers placements in many different specialty departments. On the weekend, you can go snorkeling, enjoy a festival at the 1st-century Amphitheater or hop a ferry to Venice, Italy! With so many opportunities for education and exploration, a Gap Medics program in Pula could be the perfect start to your European adventure!
