Work the World provides healthcare students with safe, structured, individually-tailored hospital placements in Africa, Asia and South America. In 2013, over 1,400 students from 250 universities around the world put their placement hopes in our hands, quoting the diversity and flexibility we offer as well as our strong reputation and expertise in the field as the main reasons for their choice.

There are opportunities for medical, nursing, midwifery, dentistry, physiotherapy, pharmacy & radiography students to join us for periods of 2 weeks to 6 months, working in public and private hospitals. Depending on your destination and discipline, we also offer the opportunity to live and work in a rural community, study traditional medicine or join an outreach project.

From the moment you sign up we work hard to understand your specific requirements before utilising the strong partnerships we have developed with hospitals, clinics and government authorities in each of the many destinations we travel to, in order to tailor a placement that fulfils your needs. We make sure you are fully prepared for your experience via My Trip, our personalised online facility that provides comprehensive information about all elements of your time away. We also make sure any supporting material required by your university, or for visa applications, is instantly available for you to download.

Of course an overseas trip is about more than just your placement. Our large, comfortable Work the World houses provide safe, secure accommodation, delicious meals and friendly and welcoming staff who are on hand 24/7 to make sure you are fully supported throughout your stay. There is also plenty of travel advice available because lets face it, these destinations were not chosen simply for their placement opportunities!

If you want the security of a well-organised, well-structured placement with none of the hassle, then get in touch. We’ll happily do the hard work for you.
