What we offer
STRUCTURED HEALTHCARE ELECTIVES ALL OVER THE WORLD.
You choose the destination and the departments you’re interested in, and we work with our partner hospitals to build your healthcare placement.
You’ll live in private, catered accommodation, and get total support both before you travel and while you’re overseas. On a healthcare placement abroad, you can travel whenever you want for as long as you like.
Supervised healthcare placements in diverse overseas hospital settings. You’ll see unfamiliar cases, inventive practices and techniques, and unique cultural attitudes towards delivering care.
Trek through lush rainforests, paraglide over snowy mountain peaks, soak up the sun on white-sand beaches, or explore ancient Buddhist temples—whatever’s on your bucket list, you’ll find your dream destination here.
