5. YOUR CLINICAL INTERNSHIP
It’s normal to feel some apprehension at the thought of undertaking your placement in a country you’ve never been to. So, to make sure you’re brimming with confidence, your in-country team will take you to your placement hospital for your welcome session before your placement starts.
In the hospital you’ll see unfamiliar cases, inventive practices and techniques, and unique cultural attitudes towards delivering care.
Placements then run from Monday to Friday, and you’ll travel to the hospital with your housemates each morning.
Need to complete a certain number of placement hours for university? No problem: Your hours are guaranteed and supervisors will formally sign off any time you spend in the hospital.
