Gap Medics - Pre-Health Shadowing Internship in Thailand

Overall rating: 0 based on 0 reviews

Program Description

If you are a high school or college student hoping to apply to med school, nursing school, or another health degree program, join Gap Medics for a short-term internship in Thailand.

This is a country where ancient culture surrounds modern medical practices. Students will shadow experienced healthcare professionals as they explore the hospital environment of this beautiful and fascinating destination. Our programs in Thailand offer unique clinical experience in our partner hospitals, breathtaking scenery, and once-in-a-lifetime adventure. Programs include pre-medical, pre-nursing, pre-physician assistant, pre-dental, and pre-midwife.


In Thailand you'll be based in Phitsanulok, a relaxed and cheerful city in the north of the country. From here you'll get the opportunity to take an adventure and tick something pretty big off your bucket list. How would you like to feed, bathe and ride an elephant through beautiful rainforest trails? We told you it was big!

Another interesting thing about Phitsanulok is its fascinating history and culture. When you're not at the hospital, do as the locals do and grab a tuk tuk and explore the city's ancient temple, Wat Yai, or head down to the night markets and pick up some mouth-watering Thai cuisine. You're welcome.


Gap Medics welcomes students aged 16 and over, and students are eligible to join up until their first year of clinical study. Our programs are excellent for current and prospective pre-health students.
