I want to practise Medical in
A BETTER EXPERIENCE WITH US
Practical experience in tough clinical environments plays a big part in every medic’s development.
The skills you’ll gain in a novel overseas setting will help you meet university requirements. And the experience will set you apart from your peers.
But coordinating an overseas elective can be tricky. Who should you contact? How can you be sure you'll get the right experience? What happens if something goes wrong?
That’s where we come in.
With our support you'll get first-class clinical experience that places you a step ahead. And all while living life in an exotic country on the other side of the world.
Gain essential skills and experience
We have long-standing professional relationships with all of our partner hospitals and clinics. Working in them you’ll: -
- Start working immediately — hospitals in the developing world are often short staffed and will value prompt support
- Broaden your medical repertoire — observe and treat rare medical cases that don’t exist in the UK
- Sharpen raw skills — diagnose and treat conditions, often without access to modern equipment or laboratories
- Treat critical stage conditions — due to distance and healthcare costs patients often present late
- Develop an organisational understanding — interact with staff across multiple departments
- Draw on specialist expertise — all medical placements are fully supervised by highly experienced professionals
- Enjoy exclusivity — we limit student numbers to make sure you get the attention you need to develop
A bespoke experience
We go to extreme lengths to ensure your placement is tailored for you from the ground up. With us you’ll get what you expect in a way that advances your skills and engages your concerns.
We construct your elective programme on a robust foundation of knowledge of each destination’s capacities, and take every possible step to see to it you’re precisely where you’ll benefit most.
Your placement is completely structured and supervised, meaning that you can remain focused on evolving your skills and enjoying downtime.
Enjoy the complete flexibility of your elective by choosing from our broad range of specialisms.
These include, but are not limited to:
General Medicine, Obstetrics & Gynaecology, Paediatrics, Emergency
General Surgery, Dermatology, Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery, Neuro-surgery, Anaesthesiology, ICU and more.
We'll take care of everything
Living and working in a foreign country takes considerable time and commitment to organise.
That’s why we oversee everything from start to finish with clinical precision — you’ll be under our professional care from the moment you book.
You’ll be assigned an Operations Manager who has personally spent time in every hospital and clinic in the regions they oversee.
And you needn’t worry about logistics. Your Operations Manager will usher you through the fastidiously constructed pre-trip preparation until you’re satisfied.
Access your personal online elective planner to profit from the complete flexibility of your medical elective.
We’ll handle your university documentation and visa supporting documentation, too.
You have our assurance that Work the World medical placements are crafted to exceed the requirements of all serious British medical schools, and are fully backed by the MPS.Read more about us
