The Gap Year experience will also allow you travel the world, as well as potentially earning you some money!

Volunteering on a Medical Project could take you to many different countries, and you don't need to be an aspiring brain surgeon to sign up. Placements could include Nursing in Africa, Midwifery in Asia, Dentistry in South America or Physiotherapy in Australasia, the world is your oyster, and luckily there are a number of specialist gap year companies on hand to help you plan the experience no matter what your level of qualification or your desired medical profession.

Once you return from your project, be sure to update your CV and notify your desired Medical School or Healthcare employer. It's important they understand you spent your gap year in a medical environment and by providing them with examples of your hands on experience, you'll be giving yourself the best opportunity of securing that dream job or course placement.
