The Work The World House
The Work the World house plays an enormous role in your overseas experience. You can think of it as your home from home.
You'll live with other healthcare students from around the world, so the houses have a lively, social atmosphere.
Our house in Hue is an oasis of calm, offering a break from the excitement of the city. The garden is beautiful, with a stream, an ancient wishing well, and a swimming pool to cool off in.
You’ll find the house in central Hue — it’s within walking distance of the Imperial City. Cross the nearby bridge over the Perfume River and you’ll find Hue’s best bars, markets, temples, and street food vendors.
Management team: Based in the house, they oversee your entire Work the World experience — 24/7 — from the moment you land to the moment you leaveCatering team: cook a variety of both local cuisine and familiar home comforts, accommodaing all dietary requirementsHousekeeper: keeps the house clean and tidy from top to bottom, making sure you're comfortableLanguage teacher: visits the house twice per-week. During their lessons, you’ll learn everyday phrases and clinical terminology to help you get more from your placementSecurity team: Monitor the house 24/7 for extra peace of mind
Support in the Hospital
Before your internship starts, you’ll go with our team in an informal tour of your placement hospital. This is so you can meet your supervisors and get a feel for the new clinical environment.
The team will pay you regular visits in the hospital throughout your placement. This helps make sure everything is running smoothly.
We’ll tell you about your supervisors before you meet them. Aim to build rapport with them and they’ll reveal what the local system is like from the perspective of a local practitioner.
We’ve got all bases covered, offering you support at every level throughout your clinical internship.

VILLAGE HEALTHCARE WEEK
At the end of your city-based internship, if you undertake this additional week in a rural setting, you’ll see a different side of healthcare in Vietnam. Alongside your official Work the World guide and interpreter, you’ll spend mornings in the local clinic, learning how local staff employ resourcefulness to get around a lack of equipment. We fill your afternoons with cultural activities, fully immersing you in the rural way of life. You’ll learn local traditions through participation, cook regional specialties, and much more.
