Work the World

We craft unique healthcare placement experiences throughout Asia, Africa and Latin America. 

At Work the World we specialise in tailoring overseas healthcare elective placements in Ghana, Tanzania, Peru, Nepal, Sri Lanka and The Philippines. Each of our destinations provide unique and exciting insight into healthcare in the developing world.

Our elective planning and support service removes the hassle and avoids the pitfalls of independently organising your placement. It also gives you the peace of mind knowing that you’ll enjoy full support and clinical supervision overseas.

In terms of accommodation, you’ll live in one of our spacious, social, and secure private houses. Living with other Work the World students from a range of countries and healthcare backgrounds creates an atmosphere of friendship such as you’ve never experienced before. You’ll also enjoy meals freshly prepared each day by our in-house chefs, as well as our now famous weekly barbeques.

Twice weekly language lessons in the house help you communicate and interact with patients more effectively to get the most out of your placement.

Your clinical experience runs from Monday to Friday. Your weekends free for exploration and adventure. Our expert ground teams will offer tips for sightseeing and trips that you can take whilst you’re away. Think safari in the Serengeti, treks to Everest Base Camp, sunbathing on beautiful beaches, and exploring ancient temples and monuments.

Get in touch and we’ll begin exploring how to create your perfect overseas experience. Enquire via our website.

Work the World Reviews

Nepal Kathmandu

WTW were fantastic. Everything was so well organised from the start or the trip right through to the end. Amazing support when planning and selecting the location. When we arrived we were warmly welcomed and the set up was fantastic. Their house is stunning. Very big with great facilities in a convenient location. Very safe. Great food during the stay. Staff were wonderful. Lota of support on the ground, with any feedback acted on. The hospital was an eye opening experience and provided good opportunities to learn. The village experience was a challenge, but in a good way. It is a great chance to see how other people live with very little. Overall fantastic value for money, the programmes seem expensive, but when you take it all into account, the entire thing was worth every penny

Arequipa, Peru - Dental Elective Placement

I had the opportunity to experience an elective placement for three weeks in the beautiful city of Arequipa, last September 2017. I've researched about other companies offering placements abroad but Work the World has a good offer with good reviews, although it doesn't come that cheap. Even though I booked for this placement last minute(a month before-not advisable), they still made the trip possible. The team replied to my inquiries through mail, answered all my questions and they will call you once or twice before departing, to ensure you have everything ready for your placement. When I got to the WTW House, it's like home away from home! The home staff catered to our needs and made sure that we had a comfortable stay. Peru is a Spanish-speaking country and English is not widely spoken by the locals. I don't speak Spanish at all but before the trip, I tried learning some of the basics and I took the 1 week Spanish Medical Course offered by WTW & it was very helpful. Most of the people who were with me in WTW house were students from different countries but WTW also offers placements for professionals like me. As for the placement, it is not an assurance that it would be always busy everyday because it all depends if there are patients but I learned a lot from how they practice dentistry in Peru. Everyday after placement, you have a lot of free time and you can roam around the city, go to the gym, take cooking lessons and etc. On weekends, you can do travel excursions around Peru. So all in all it was a nice experience. You can have the best of both worlds- traveling while working at the same time!

Nursing in the Philippines

Work the world were absolutely incredible and made my dream of nursing in the Philippines come true! They were so supportive right from enquiring about the trip, to preparation and supporting me during my elective placement as I ended up in hospital myself. They made sure my family in the UK knew what was happening and a staff member had to stay with me in hospital which meant I was never alone. Right through until I came home they were amazing, I am now an ambassador for work the world giving presentations to hundreds of nursing students and also have my blog published in the Nursing Times so it really does open up so many opportunities!
