There's no doubt about it: becoming a doctor is hard work. But if you're ready for it, so are we! Our internships abroad let you shadow real-life doctors and gain first-hand clinical work experience.

A Gap Medics program is all about shadowing being alongside carefully selected physicians and other health professionals as they go about their day-to-day work in hospitals. It's the ultimate way to discover first hand what being a doctor is really like.
Your program is likely to include a variety of different shadowing settings, from watching surgical operations in theatre to ward rounds and outpatient clinics. If you're looking for a general overview of life as a hospital doctor, we'll place you in the departments we know will give you the best and most varied experience. We are also happy to take into consideration your specific interests, and we have opportunities in a huge range of departments including pediatrics, surgery, orthopedics, internal medicine, obstetrics, gynecology, urology, oncology, neurology, physiotherapy and radiography.
