We know the reasons you may want to go on a shadowing internship program with us might be different from the next student. Whatever your motivation or area of interest — medicine, nursing, dentistry, midwifery or physician assistant (PA) studies—we have you covered. Find out how we have changed the lives of some of our past students.
Collette completed a pre-medical program in Thailand.
In April 2014, I was lucky enough to travel to Thailand from Canada for a medical placement.
I completely loved my experience abroad. Not only was it packed with things to do but I also made some amazing friends at the house and within the community.
Gap Medics provided me with invaluable hospital experience that would otherwise not have been possible. Every day I spent time in a different ward where I was able to learn about different procedures while bonding with the staff and patients.
I was able to shadow the professional of my choice and gain lots of first-hand experience. This reaffirmed my passion for medicine and provided a useful framework of experience for medical school.
In the evenings, we attended global health tutorials, received Thai lessons and explored the stunning local temples and attractions.
The Gap Medics staff members were incredibly welcoming and helpful. They organized games for us and gave us some great tips on what to do in the area.
I miss the whole experience and I would recommend it to anyone!
