What we do
Studying healthcare has opened the door for you to do something that will totally shift your worldview. We specialise in life-changing electives in Africa, Asia, and South America, so make the jump and come with us and get clinical experience in one of the many exotic destinations we operate in. Lots of students choose to undertake healthcare electives abroad with us and having sent over 5000 students to developing countries around the world, we’ve developed the best placements you'll find anywhere. Elective opportunities like this don't come around every day - make yours count.
exceptional clinical experience
Our students tell us that working in healthcare systems in the developing world is eye-opening. The disparity between the services offered to patients in developed vs. developing nations will become immediately obvious. Lack of access to funds, equipment and resources means the level of care patients receive is limited.
You’ll also have a newfound appreciation for the luxuries afforded to both staff and patients back at home, and also pick up skills from seasoned professionals working in these novel environments - one of the key takeaways from the experience. Relationships between staff and patients will be different to what you’re used to, as will the duties assigned to each role.
World travel is one of the most valuable experiences a person can have. It builds both confidence and compassion if you let it. Living and working in another country, another culture, delivers a perspective that is offered by no other experience. You’ll see things that others have never seen, not even seasoned travellers.
Try unusual foods, take part in festivals and make friends with new neighbours. Learn new customs and languages, and come to understand different ways of living. In your free time you’ll explore far beyond the reaches of the local community. Climb 5000ft mountains, dive on shipwrecks, trek through jungles, explore ancient cities and enjoy calm golden beaches with a cocktail or two. We have destinations to suit every taste. Just say yes, and we'll do the rest.
