Dominic completed a medical placement at one of our busy partner hospitals in Kilimanjaro.
“I completed a placement at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Tanzania during the summer of 2014. It was an absolutely enthralling experience that provided me with valuable material for my medical school interviews.
As I had previously undertaken work experience in an NHS hospital in the UK, my Gap Medics placement provided me with the perfect opportunity to compare and contrast the two very different healthcare environments. It also helped me understand how conditions can change depending on location and economic circumstance.
Being exposed to a diverse range of hospital settings before making my UCAS application to medical school was very helpful. I believe my Gap Medics experience made a huge impact in my medical school interviews as it enabled me to demonstrate my understanding of the profession and show how committed I was to further studies in the field.
In my situation, I feel that my mind has been broadened; especially my opinion of how far-reaching and impactful the work of doctors can be. Because of this, I feel more prepared for medical school.”
