Gap Medics Work Experience placement
Gap year: Posted 18-7-13 Deadline - No Deadline
Combine hospital work experience with a once in a lifetime opportunity with our Australian Summer Special!
I have received this: Are you keen to break into the medical field? We all know that the road to becoming a doctor, nurse, midwife or dentist can be a tough one, but with the Gap Medics Australian Summer Special, students will have the chance to gain work experience that will truly make them stand out from the crowd and break into their dream career. Gaining a place at university or medical school is becoming increasingly more difficult, with more and more students wanting to study towards these rewarding careers. The best thing for aspiring medics to do is to seek out work experience that is not only going to benefit them and their studies, but also grab the attention of the universities they are applying to. Aspiring medics between the ages of 16 -25 can join us this summer on our Australian Summer Special in Thailand or Tanzania from 5th January 2014! Here they will shadow healthcare professionals in a variety of departments, getting a real-life insight into the work of medical professionals in a new and exciting country. No amount of work experience available back home in Australia will measure up! Alongside gaining beneficial work experience, students will be able to get together with fellow Australians and experience everything the amazing destination has to offer. From days spent running around the busy hospital wards, to evenings watching wildlife down by the waterhole or cooking over an open fire with all of the fellow housemates. There are even wildlife safaris and hill-tribe treks to uncover at the weekends for those who are looking for a bit more exploration! Places are limited and are likely to fill up quickly, so students should book early to avoid missing out on this once in a lifetime experience! The cost of a one-week placement is $1,990 (USD), but students can opt to join us for longer if they wish.
