Tomika completed a nursing internship placement in Thailand.
“It’s safe to say that as soon as I read about what Gap Medics offered, I was absolutely hooked on the idea of going on placement. Luckily, I was able to turn this dream into a reality when I travelled to Thailand on a four-week nursing placement.
While on this adventure I got the opportunity to stay with 40 other students from across the world and shadow nurses at a number of hospitals in the region.
Many of the things I observed, like natural births and surgeries, were so different and new. Every day I was excited to wake up because I never knew what I was going to see that day!
Every single nurse I shadowed was more than happy to explain in detail what they did and let me help with minor and major clinical tasks, like taking blood pressure and bandaging up wounds.
This experience not only taught me invaluable knowledge about nursing but it gave me the chance to make lifelong friends, receive hands-on experience and make unforgettable memories.
Gap Medics was life-changing and I will cherish the experience forever.”
