Medical Work Experience Internship, in Madurai, India

         

I can't describe how helpful and lovely Karen and Pradeep [Travellers' Managers in India] were the whole time I was there. They were like parents away from home and they did everything in their power to make us all feel 100% welcome at all times and advised us with any concerns we had. I couldn't have asked for better in-country support staff!

My accommodation was better than my student flat, so I really can't complain!

From the moment I stepped off the plane and was greeted by Karen and Pradeep at the arrivals hall I knew that what I was about to embark on would turn out to be one of the best experiences of my life! Karen and Pradeep were friendly, welcoming and supporting throughout the whole time I was there, but even after I left they called me and made sure I was doing OK in the rest of my travels.

My medical internship was extraordinary, the people I met were wonderful, and the experience I gained was incomparable to anything I could have ever done in Europe! As long as you were willing to learn, the doctors and nurses were always willing to help you get as much from the experience as you could.

I was given the opportunity to measure the blood pressure for many patients, assist in several surgeries and even suture a wound, to mention a few! I shadowed a urologist called Dr.Ramesh for the majority of the time I was there and he was the best teacher anyone could ever want...knowledgeable, patient and wise!

I could write essays about my time in India but nothing I can say can describe how beautiful it and life-changing it was. If you get the chance, please go!!!!!!!!!
