International Medical Work Experience

For 16-25 year olds

Shadow doctors, nurses, dentists or midwives in hospital for 1 – 8 weeks

students since 2010

Gap Medics is the world's leading provider of international hospital work experience placements for aspiring medical, nursing, midwifery and dentistry students. Our observational placements allow students aged 16 and over to shadow doctors and other health professionals safely in the front line of clinical medicine and surgery, and we have separate dedicated programmes for 16/17 year olds and over 18s.

Joining our programme can help you to make the right decisions about whether a career in healthcare is for you, as well as which particular profession might suit you best. It also provides the opportunity to gain valuable first hand insights that can be used as part of your UCAS personal statement and during university interviews to demonstrate your interest and understanding of the healthcare industry.

At the heart of each of our programmes in Europe, Africa and the Caribbean is the Gap Medics House. This is the buzzing social hub that becomes your home from home - the place you'll return to after each day in the hospital to relax, socialise and be surrounded by new friends that will stay with you for years to come.

Placements are available to start every weekend of the year, for as many or as few weeks as you like.
