For those seeking a career in medicine and many of the subjects allied to medicine, such as nursing and physiotherapy, prior experience is absolutely essential when applying to medical school or university.

Our medical programmes give you the unparalleled opportunity to gain experience in medicine in a different country. You will spend time shadowing doctors, nurses and other health care professionals on ward rounds and may have the opportunity to spend more time in specific departments that you're interested in such as theatre, A and E, paediatrics and more, if your time with us permits.

The practice of medicine in foreign countries is starkly different to our own. In poorer countries, medical care is expensive and often patients can't afford treatments. You may witness a doctor trying to establish the extent of injuries sustained in an accident when the patient can't afford x-rays, or gain experience in diseases such a polio as patients can't afford the inoculations. You will also witness the treatment of tropical and infectious diseases we just don't see, such as malaria, typhoid or bilharzia.

Medical projects can be combined with teaching, work in an orphanage or any of our other projects. They can be done as part of a gap year or during the summer holidays.

Having this experience on your application to university or college can significantly improve your chances of getting a place on that competitive course so contact us now to chat about your requirements and securing a place on one of our medical projects.

This project is not just for budding medical students, this programme may also be suitable for those about to study:

  • Nursing
  • Physiotherapy
  • Dentistry
