Your working hours are usually subject to a shift rota, Monday to Fridays only; one session in the morning and one in the evenings with the afternoon off to rest or explore the city! However, some of the hospitals arrange surgeries in the afternoons and you may have the option to attend these instead of going back for the evening session.

The trip was incredible, it was everything I expected and more. The medical placement was very insightful. The staff always made me feel very welcome. I managed to see around 15 surgical procedures in the 3 weeks I was there, ranging from 9 hour brain surgery to 2 hour removal of a benign ovary via key hole surgery.
