Kara completed a medical work experience placement at Iringa Regional Hospital.
“I have always found the human body fascinating but I wasn’t sure if it was something I wanted to dedicate my entire life to. Thus, the aim of my placement was to find out if medicine was right for me and I now feel 100% confident it is!
My two weeks in Tanzania were more insightful and motivating than the first five years I had already spent at university. During my time at Iringa Regional Hospital I was able to experience everything medicine had to offer. I thoroughly enjoyed shadowing the doctors and learning what they did on a day-to-day level.
I found the positive attitudes of my mentors inspiring. They did so much with so little and despite everything they still took the time to involve me in what they were doing. I couldn’t help but be affected by such an outpouring of support! It also made me appreciate what we had back in Australia.
My time overseas was an emotional roller coaster but I’d recommend Gap Medics to anyone. It definitely helped me see the bigger picture of what it means to be a doctor.
I think about what I learned in Tanzania every day and in a way I’m still trying to process it all. You learn so much about the world, about people, about health, and most importantly, about yourself.
Take advantage of everything Gap Medics has to offer – it’s the trip of a lifetime!
5 out of 5 stars for sure!”
