Overall rating: 0 based on 0 reviews

Program Description

Gap Medics is a specialist company dedicated to providing structured medical work experience in Tanzania, Croatia, Poland or Thailand.

Fierce competition. Hard work. Long hours. Nobody said becoming a doctor was easy. The good news is we can help. Our medical placements let you shadow real-life doctors and gain first-hand clinical work experience. Along with global health tutorials, we give you a competitive edge for your personal statement and admission interview for university.

Shadowing doctors

A Gap Medics placement is all about shadowing – being alongside carefully selected doctors and other health professionals as they go about their day-to-day work in hospitals. It’s the ultimate way to discover first-hand what being a doctor is really like. Your placement is likely to include a variety of different shadowing settings, from watching surgical operations in theatre to ward rounds and outpatient clinics. If you’re looking for a general overview of life as a hospital doctor, we’ll place you in the departments we know will give you the best and most varied experience. We are also happy to take into consideration your specific interests, and we have opportunities in a huge range of departments including paediatrics, surgery, orthopaedics, internal medicine, obstetrics, gynaecology, urology, oncology, neurology, physiotherapy and radiography.


No matter what destination you choose, you will be immersed in the local culture and get the opportunity to discover what being a doctor is really like during your placement.

Our exclusive houses and in-house catering all add to the friendly, family feel of a Gap Medics adventure. From Tanzania to the Caribbean, Croatia and Poland, our programme locations are carefully selected and will offer you a truly enjoyable and unique hospital work experience placement.

On a weekend you can enjoy a 'Weekend Adventure' which are team are happy to help you organise.


Gap Medics welcomes students aged 16 and over and our programs are excellent for both prospective and current medical students.
