Projects Abroad Medicine & Healthcare Placements Overseas Reviews

I volunteered in Nepal with PA & I couldn’t have been happier :)

During the whole duration of a trip I felt safe and I had a great time, experiencing new culture and day-to-day reality of work at the hospital (I went on a medical project for HS students). Almost 3 years later I am still in contact with people I met during the project and I look back fondly at the memories I made.

Wonderful trip

Got to immerse into the local community, venture out into the communities and also provide healthcare and health education to local people in Cambodia.

Incredible Program

My experience on a healthcare placement with Projects Abroad was sensational. I participated on a public health program in Cambodia which was fantastically organised. Every single day I felt as though we were achieving incredible things. I would recommend this program to anyone.

Peru Medical Project Experience

The project has been fantastically organised allowing for experience in hospital and outreach settings. The staff have gone above and beyond and will be missed greatly when I return home!
