Medical Work Experience Internship in Madurai, India
         

I gained an excellent experience of the culture and about how hospitals are run in India and how it is different to that in England. The best thing about the placement was being able to make friends at work and with other volunteers. I really enjoyed being able to celebrate pongal with the rest of the people. 

I would definitely recommend this placement to others! It was so much fun and I really wish I could have stayed there for longer. The other volunteers and so nice and the people there are so welcoming. They really do go out of their way to help you.

Overall it was a fantastic placement and I really enjoyed myself. Thank you for organising it. I had an excellent time and I’d love to go back when the opportunity arises.

Can you describe a typical day?

Work started at 11, so until then, I’d get ready and have breakfast, and lunch just before I left, so I could make the most of the time I had at work. Once I’d finished work at 4, I’d come home and usually have a nap, as the heat was really tiring.

Then in the evening if a friend and I were up for it we'd take a tuk tuk to the market or go somewhere. In the evening usually before dinner I’d go to the internet place and check e-mails. After dinner, we'd all just sit together play cards and have fun, until it was bed time (about 11).
