Christopher completed a medical placement at Iringa Regional Hospital.
“I honestly struggle to find a single negative thing to say regarding my Gap Medics placement. It was an absolutely incredible experience that I would strongly recommend to anyone considering it.
While on placement at Iringa Regional Hospital, I gained a great deal of clinical knowledge from my mentors. This experience provided me with valuable insight into conditions that are not commonly seen in developed countries, such as malaria and HIV.
My time in the hospital also provided me with a renewed appreciation for the tribulations of third-world healthcare, particularly with respect to the quantity and level of available resources and technology.
Outside the hospital, I was given the opportunity to immerse myself in a beautiful land and culture very different from my own. The weekend safari organised by Gap Medics was stunning!
In addition to this, I met loads of awesome people from around the world and became part of a very close-knit group of friends. It is with these people that I shared my Gap Medics experience and made some truly incredible memories.
Even in my early stages as a medical student, it is already clear that the knowledge and skills I have acquired through Gap Medics will be extremely valuable in my career as a health professional.
This placement was one of the most enjoyable things that I have ever done and is an experience that I will remember for the rest of my life.
From the bottom of my heart, thank you Gap Medics.”
