We know the reasons you may want to go on a placement with us might be different from the next student. Whatever your motivation or area of interest — medicine, nursing, dentistry or midwifery — we have you covered. Find out how we have changed the lives of some of our past students.
Bethany completed a midwifery work experience placement at Iringa Regional Hospital.
“I’d like to begin by saying that my Gap Medics placement was utterly unforgettable and invaluable to opening my eyes to the world of midwifery.
While at the hospital, the dedicated midwives and obstetricians I shadowed every opportunity to teach me about caring for women and their babies. I felt completely at home at the hospital and comfortable asking questions. I also felt like my mentors really cared about how my learning was progressing and they even quizzed us to keep us on our toes!
Outside of the hospital, there was plenty of time to see the amazing African landscape and be immersed in the vibrant Tanzanian culture. We explored marketplaces, visited local orphanages and hiked to incredible boulders.
The trip to Ruaha National Park for the weekend safari was especially memorable. There is nothing like driving through untouched wilderness in an open-top four-wheel drive and coming face-to-face with iconic African wildlife!
On top of everything, the Gap Medics staff members were very helpful and made sure we were taken care of. They quickly became like family!
Gap Medics was even more amazing than I imagined. It was an absolute privilege to witness so many new lives coming into the world.
I would do it again in a heartbeat!”
