We’ve got better…

Gap Medics is now Global Pre-Meds

Ten years ago, we opened our doors to provide inspirational hospital shadowing opportunities for aspiring medical students, under the name Gap Medics. Since then, we’ve helped more than 12,000 students to achieve tremendous success on their journeys to medical school and beyond – experience that has earned us an unrivalled reputation for powerfully immersive, safe and ethical experiences.

As we introduce some major enhancements to our programs, we’ve taken the opportunity to choose a name that better reflects what we have become: A truly global organization bringing together pre-med and pre-health students from around the world.

We’ve improved our mentoring system, partnering each student with a fully-accredited medical doctor to ensure constant professional supervision, as well as a very personalised learning experience and meaningful recommendation letters for medical school applications.

We still have our own houses to create that fun, social and supportive environment; and of course, the passionate, friendly teams that have always made Gap Medics so popular.

Our new University Program is for students aged 18 and over, and we still offer a dedicated High School Program with increased supervision for 16-18 year olds.
