Isabel completed a medical placement at MSW Central Clinical Hospital.
My Gap Medics trip to Warsaw, Poland in December 2014 was one of the most amazing, valuable, and memorable opportunities I have ever experienced.
I have always wanted to be a surgeon and this placement definitely provided me with insight on what it would be like.
During my placement I spent time in the cardiovascular department with Dr. Kaliciński as my mentor. He wasn’t the only one who supported me though – a number of other doctors dedicated their time to teaching us the cardiovascular parts of the body and showing us what it’s like to be a doctor.
In my opinion, there is no other program that could provide you with such an insightful and valuable medical experience, especially when you are young. Besides the hospital component of the trip, the fact that we got to explore Warsaw was genuinely amazing.
I got to discover such a breath-taking city and a new culture. I also made lifelong friends from different parts of the world and I loved that we shared similar interests.
I am so fortunate to have found this program and extremely thankful I got to partake in this amazing trip. Gap Medics made me 100% certain that I want to be a surgeon.
