Jack completed a medical placement at Morogoro Regional Hospital.
“My medical work experience in Tanzania was invaluable to my successful application to medical school.
Gap Medics gave me the opportunity to see and do more than any Australian hospital would. While in Tanzania, I was exposed to real-life situations that provided me with invaluable interaction with the medical world.
Doctors, nurses (and even patients) went out of their way and made sure I understood what was going on and involved me in as many procedures as possible.
My placement experience made a HUGE difference when it came to applying for medical school as it enabled me to demonstrate what I had learned about rural and tropical healthcare. This was particularly applicable to the undergraduate medical course I applied for at James Cook University.
When it came to my written application, the references from my Tanzanian supervising doctors really stood out. Furthermore, my medical school interview went amazingly well and my interviewers could not stop asking me about my Gap Medics experience and acknowledged it was a clear indication of my maturity and motivation to study medicine.
Ultimately, I can’t thank Gap Medics enough.
For those interested in pursuing a career in healthcare there is no better experience I can recommend to you.”
