Who we are
Gap Medics is the leading specialist dedicated to providing year-round hospital internships and work experience placements abroad to students aged 16 years and over.
Our programs in Europe, Africa, Asian and the Caribbean offer you the chance to gain unique insight into the work of doctors, nurses, physician assistants, midwives, dentists and allied health professions before you begin your clinical training. Not only will you receive beneficial experience to help with your university applications and interviews but you will also learn more about your future profession.
We provide placements in Croatia and Poland in Europe, Tanzania in East Africa, the Dominican Republic in the Caribbean (program is delivered in Spanish) and Thailand in Asia. Our hospital partnerships pair you up with an experienced mentor to give you a truly comprehensive insight into the day-to-day work of healthcare professionals. They also offers an exciting experience to explore a new country.
Our Head Office is based in Newcastle upon Tyne, England, but we welcome thousands of students from all over the world every year. Our comprehensive support service is designed to make these opportunities as safe and secure as possible, calling on our experience from placing thousands of students, just like you, in healthcare settings around the world since 2005.
Professional staff teams with expert local knowledge run our overseas programs. All our staff are employed and trained directly by our highly experienced UK team. Unlike other organizations, we do not outsource our operations to third parties – even the person who meets you when you get off the plane is part of our team, wearing the distinctive black Gap Medics T-shirt!
