With Work the World, you can travel to exciting destinations in Latin America, Africa and across Asia.
First, you’ll talk to one of our consultants. They’re experts when it comes to our internships and will help you find the destination that suits you best.
You’ll then get access to MyTrip—our interactive internship planner and encyclopedia of personalized information surrounding your trip.
Next, we work closely with you to completely tailor your internship to match your clinical interests.
Once everything is agreed, we work with our overseas teams and partner hospitals to prepare your internship in the country you’ve chosen, ready for when you arrive.
When you land, our team will be there to meet you at the airport and take you back to your private accommodation; the Work the World house.
You’ll live in the house with students from a range of disciplines from all over the world, giving the house a diverse atmosphere.
Each Work the World house is run by an experienced, locally-hired Management Team who offer 24/7 support both in and out of the hospital.
Our in-house caterers cook delicious breakfasts and dinners each day, taking dietary requirements into account...
Our housekeeper will keep your living space fresh and clean...
And a language teacher will visit twice a week to teach you some of the local language, including healthcare phrases to help you get the most from your hospital internship.
When you arrive at the house, you’ll get a detailed welcome briefing. Our team will also take you out on a city orientation, helping you get your bearings and prepare you for local life.
Before you start your internship, the Work the World team will take you to your internship hospital and introduce you to department staff.
Department staff will welcome you as a member of their team, helping you get unique clinical experience throughout your internship.
Your evenings and weekends are totally free to explore the country you’ve chosen. Whether it’s climbing mountains...
Relaxing on tropical beaches...
Going on safari...
Or exploring local history and culture, there’s something for everyone.
Going it alone? You can spend weekends traveling with the new friends you make in the Work the World house.
We have facilitated thousands of overseas healthcare internships around the world.
