Medical Internships for Undergraduate Students

Ditch the textbooks. Deep dive into medicine.

Are you looking to supercharge your medical studies with real-life experience?! 

Our two to eight-week summer placements put you alongside medical professionals and fellow students. You’ll gain healthcare exposure that you just can’t get in the classroom. 

These internships are tailor-made for 18 to 24-year-olds studying medicine in the UK. The priority is exposure — moving your learning from textbooks to healthcare settings in countries like Tanzania, Peru, or Nepal. 

Think of this as your launchpad to medical mastery. You’ll deep dive into diverse healthcare settings, gain crucial observation hours, and contribute to global healthcare equality.

By joining an Undergrad Medical Internship, you will:

  • Conquer your summer break by joining a tailor-made healthcare internship for UK undergraduate medical students.
  • Spend 40+ hours directly observing the work of doctors.
  • Provide 15+ hours of education and medical checks to underserved communities.
  • Attend workshops and lectures led by top medical professionals.
  • Master new medical skills and develop your bedside manner.
  • Go global by encountering new healthcare systems, tropical diseases, and cultural nuances that will broaden your horizons.
  • Find your passion as you rotate between departments and observe different specialties.
  • Join a group of like-minded students for pre-organised social and cultural activities.

Our Undergrad Medical Internships are tailored to give you exposure before doing your foundation years. They also reveal the realities of hospital work so you can continue your career in medicine with confidence.

Step outside your comfort zone to become a more well-rounded professional, learn and explore with like-minded students, and discover a new world of healthcare.
