Gap Medics midwifery student listening to babies heartbeat. You’ll spend between one and two weeks on placement in hospitals overseas. You’ll have the opportunity to spend time on the wards, in surgery and on the labour room – there’s something for everyone. Whilst you’re on placement, you’ll be assigned to experienced healthcare professionals who will act as your mentors, guiding you every step of the way.

If you’re hoping to apply to medical school, this experience will really help your UAC or direct university application to shine, and can set you on the right path to your future career.

You can choose to travel to Tanzania, Thailand, Croatia or Poland. Each country offers a different perspective on global medicine – but whichever destination you choose, you can guarantee that it will be a real contrast to what you see at home. You could be witnessing cases of malaria in Tanzania, hypertension in Thailand, pancreatic cancer in Poland or heart disease in Croatia.

You’ll live in one of our awesome, private Gap Medics houses, where you can make friends from all over the world. When you’re not in the hospital, you’ll have plenty of time to explore the local area. Whether you fancy heading out on safari in Tanzania, elephant riding in Thailand, island hopping in Croatia or sightseeing in Poland, you’ll be sure to enjoy yourself!
