Your placement will be based in Jaipur. Half of your time will be spent shadowing the doctors of a busy multi-speciality hospital. The doctors are eager to show you all they can and share their knowledge. Do not hesitate to be proactive, asking them questions and taking notes!
During your placement, you will also have the chance to visit a leprosarium as well as have the opportunity to attend a medical outreach project.
On arrival you will be briefed on India's medical system and on the Indian culture. Tips and advice will be given by your coordinators to make sure that you get the most out of the experience.
