If future doctors, nurses, midwives and dentists from Rhyddings Business & Enterprise School are having trouble finding work experience – we can help! Gap Medics programmes offer an opportunity to take a glimpse into their future careers; helping them to make better, more informed decisions about their educational and professional goals.

A unique insight into working in healthcare – Our programmes are founded on a combination of mentoring, observation and tutorial, which helps students develop a unique understanding of working in healthcare.

Our mentors have a genuine enthusiasm to give each student the best learning experience possible. Most of our partner hospitals are large and busy, providing plenty of scope for learning about different specialisms and departments. In operating theatre, students stand away from the operating table, but within close enough proximity to get a clear view of each procedure.

The main placement types we offer are medicine, nursing, midwifery and dentistry however we can also arrange shadowing in more specialist fields like radiography and physiotherapy.

Joining a Gap Medics programme is not just about getting great work experience; it’s about meeting like-minded people from all over the world and being immersed in a completely new culture and environment. We have destinations on four continents, located in some of the most beautiful and exciting places in the world!

“I absolutely loved my experience…it totally changed my life in ways I can’t even describe”
