Sharan completed a medical placement at one our busy partner hospitals in La Romana
“The Gap Medics trip to Dominican Republic is a must-go trip to anyone thinking about a career in medicine!
On my arrival to the Gap Medics house, I was warmly welcomed by the staff who were very informative and helped me settle in quick.
I chose to attend the general surgery department for my one week placement and I was privileged to not only shadow my surgeon, but I also got involved to assist in minor surgeries. After my hospital placements in the morning, I went with my friends to beautiful tourist sites such as Casa de Campo Resort and also to the town centre where I brought back home memorable gifts for my family and loved ones.
Throughout the week I made such wonderful memories and having thought it was mainly a ‘work-placement’ trip, it was very much a holiday too as I was able to explore the country and the local community of La Romana.
I strongly recommend to anyone thinking about Gap Medics whether it is to the Dominican Republic or to any other country around the world. The experiences I have gained will be beneficial for my path to become a medic and I hope you too can become a part of Gap Medics!”
