I am a gap year student applying for medicine in October 2013.

I’m looking to do a short voluntary placement involving all kinds of activities including some medical work experience.

If anyone is in a similar position, please contact me.. I don’t want to go alone! :(

The company ‘projects abroad’ do medical / healthcare electives abroad. Have a look see if there is anything of interest.

Well medical and healthcare electives are of quite specific interest. You might struggle to find someone one here. Try looking on a medical / nursing / midwives based forum? You may find a keener travel partner there.

Thanks I’ll give it a go but to be honest I want to do a combination of activities like teaching English, working with young and old, wildlife conservation as well as a bit of health based experience. So really it’s anyone who is interested in doing a combination of voluntary activities with similar interests to myself smile I will keep looking, thanks for your help.
