CUSTOMIZED INTERNSHIPS IN HOSPITALS OVERSEAS.

Imagine being right there, shadowing local healthcare specialists in an under-resourced hospital in the developing world. The departments lack equipment and patient volumes are high, but local staff still do everything they can to deliver care with what little they have. On our hospital internships you’ll learn how social, cultural and religious factors affect how care is delivered, see unfamiliar practices and conditions, and get meaningful insight into global health.

FLEXIBLE BOOKING 

Our programs are open! You can book your Work the World overseas placement with total confidence. Once you’ve secured your space, you can make unlimited changes to your travel dates, absolutely free. Need a last-minute placement? We have developed a fast-track that lets us plan and build you a world-class trip, faster than ever.
