We - Work the World - are a UK-based organisation with over 15 years of experience and expertise in creating experiences for students like you in overseas hospitals.
Up until recently, our focus was sending university students on award-winning clinical electives to hospitals all over the world.
But in recent years we have been inundated with requests from pre-university students like you. We listened, and built a project structured with you in mind.
Long-term hospital partnerships
When we set up programmes in the developing world, one of our goals is making sure our presence benefits the host country.
One of the ways we achieve this is by setting up long-term partnerships with local hospitals. Everyone from individual department staff to hospital directors help these partnerships take shape.
We make regular monetary contributions to the hospitals we work with. We do this by putting aside a fixed amount to each of our partner hospitals for every student they host.
We make equipment donations too — laptops, medicine trolleys, dentistry curing lights, portable theatres, pulse oximeters, blood pressure monitors, thermometers…. Much more than we can list here.
We are well established:
- 17,000+ completed trips
- 15 years of experience and expertise
- 50+ long-standing hospital partnerships
- Independently rated 4.8 out of 5 by students worldwide
