Gap Medics: Pre-Health Medical Internships Aboard for High School and Undergraduate Students. Shadow doctors, nurses, physician assistants, or dentists for 1-8 weeks. 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 this program 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 program 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, socialize 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.
