Work the World make every effort to provide the best possible experience for healthcare electives and placements. We have worked with students all across the UK and as far afield as China, Australia and Kenya to arrange safe, structured programmes that match clinical and personal interests.
We understand that everyone has different expectations, queries and questions and enjoy the challenge of working with each person individually to sort everything out.
The best way to know whether we are the right people to arrange your placement is to read first-hand about the experiences of some of our healthcare elective placements.
