SHADOW DOCTORS & NURSES

Thailand is rapidly gaining in recognition for the quality of its healthcare services, and attracts hundreds of thousands of international patients each year for state-of-the art medical treatment.   You will be paired with a full-time doctor or nurse and will shadow this professional on daily rounds from 8:00 am until 4:00 pm, Monday through Friday, as they consult with patients, administer treatment, and perform surgeries.  All of the doctors with whom interns will work are highly qualified.  Many have received their credentials overseas in the United States or United Kingdom.  The professional that you shadow will have excellent command of the English language.   Each stage of observation is carefully monitored to ensure the safety and comfort of the patients involved.  This incredible experience is characterized by an unrivaled level of access that is not available in most countries.  Internships take place in international-standard hospitals that are carefully vetted full-service private and public hospitals featuring state-of-the art infrastructure and in most cases include each of the following departments:  general surgery; dermatology; diagnostic radiology; ear, nose, and throat; intensive care unit; neurosurgery; and orthopedic surgery.
