Teaching projects


“Our medical programmes give you the unparalleled opportunity to gain experience in medicine in a different country. You will spend time shadowing doctors, nurses and other health care professionals on ward rounds and may have the opportunity to spend more time in specific departments that you’re interested in such as theatre, A and E, paediatrics and more, if your time with us permits.

The practice of medicine in foreign countries is starkly different to our own. In poorer countries, medical care is expensive and often patients can’t afford treatments. You may witness a doctor trying to establish the extent of injuries sustained in an accident when the patient can’t afford x-rays, or gain experience in diseases such a polio as patients can’t afford the inoculations. You will also witness the treatment of tropical and infectious diseases we just don’t see, such as malaria, typhoid or bilharzia.”

Medical projects can be combined with teaching, work in an orphanage or any of our other projects.

They can be done as part of a gap year or during the summer holidays.

Medical practice in China isn’t divided into conventional practices and the ‘alternative’ or ‘complimentary’. What makes medical work experience in China so unique is that traditional forms of Chinese medicine are combined with more conventional western techniques and a more holistic approach to patient care and health is adopted.
