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 abroad 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.
You can book your Work the World overseas internship with total confidence. Once you’ve secured your space, you can make changes to your travel dates up to 90 days before departure with no administration fees. Need a last-minute internship? We have developed a fast track that lets us plan and build you a world-class trip, faster than ever.
What are the benefits?
Our healthcare internships abroad sharpen your clinical knowledge and skills, develop your confidence, grow your professional network, and make you more attractive to employers. A volunteer experience like this also changes you as a person. You’ll learn a lot about yourself on your trip, and make lasting memories with the friends you meet along the way.
Where can I travel?
You have plenty of time for adventure too. Snowy mountains, paradise beaches, lush rainforests…. Whatever your style, we’ve got destinations to suit. You can choose from diverse locations across Asia and Africa. Each has a unique character, and our team will help you decide which one is your best match.
