Our Medical Work Experience placement gives you a fantastic insight into the workings of a hospital in a different country. You will have more in-depth or less in-depth hands-on experience depending on whether you are studying medicine, are qualified, or have not yet started your studies. Generally, your day will start with accompanying the doctors on ward rounds to see the in-patients. You will also be able to sit in on doctor-patient consultations. You'll be assigned to a doctor or nurse who will supervise you during each session and they will explain the workings of their job and take you into one of the departments in the hospital. You will have a chance to assist doctors while performing surgeries in the operation theatre. Your working hours are usually subject to a shift rota, Monday to Fridays only; one session in the morning and one in the evenings with the afternoon off to rest or explore the city!
