This project is suitable for people interested in studying or going into medicine, current medical students or qualified practitioners looking to understand medicine in another country. We work with a multi-specialty hospital with a mission - “Promotion of Life through Health Care with Love”. On your first day of your placement you will be taken to the hospital and introduced to the doctor in charge. After re-confirming your main area of interest, you may be allocated a supervisor who will look after you throughout your stay. All the hospitals that we work with are superbly run, and everyone will make you feel extremely welcome to be there. The multi-speciality hospital covers many different areas including;

  • Accident & Emergency
  • Cardiology

  • Psychiatry
  • Paediatrics
  • Minimal Access Surgery

Working Hours 

It is difficult to be specific about the day-to-day work you will do because work is so varied and spread across many areas. You will be assigned to a doctor or nurse and they will help show and explain to you the workings of their job.

You will get a good general feel of the hospital by working and/or observing in most departments. The type of work you will be allocated will depend to an extent on your own abilities and capabilities, which is understandable given that you will be dealing with patient health and safety.

Most of your work will be to help and assist the local doctors and nurses with their daily rounds, making medical notes and observing the staff at work. The greater your knowledge, ability and experience that you bring with you, the more you will be asked and able to participate, especially in the more advanced tasks. You may be able to examine patients and you may also get the opportunity to scrub up and witness surgeries too (this is at the doctors discretion however).

This placement is open to everyone with an interest in medicine; you do not need any qualifications to work at most of our hospitals. The most important thing for this placement is that you’re self motivated, pro-active, confident working both alone and in a team and have a friendly disposition.
