Shadowing a DoctorJune 18, 2015
Midwifery is one of our most sought after placements because of the priceless experience on offer witnessing live births with experienced midwives in the delivery suite.
Tanzania is our most popular destination to shadow midwives with places often filling exceptionally quickly. The good news is we now have extra spaces available for a late summer two-week special starting on August 30 in Kilimanjaro.
We offer tailor-made hospital placements matching you with a highly skilled midwife mentor. This opportunity is perfect for anyone aged 16+ looking to strengthen his or her UCAS application and gain real-life clinical experience.
Book now and within weeks you could be going through the vital checks needed for every new born baby, born just minutes earlier.
We have worked with our Tanzanian partner hospitals for many years so can ensure you get unrivalled access to experienced midwives and at least 23 hours of intensive hospital based shadowing each week.
This really is midwifery laid bare. You will experience everything that a Tanzanian midwife goes through.
In the evenings you return to our local Gap Medics house where you will be able to share your experiences with aspiring midwifery students from around the world.
On the weekends you will be able to travel to some of the most incredible tourist destinations that Africa has to offer, such as the famous Serengeti National Park, Mount Kilimanjaro and the Zanzibar archipelago!
As places this summer are filling up quickly, we would expect these extra dates will be highly sought after, so don’t miss out.
