Our Thailand project takes place in our twin bases of Bangkok and Chiang Mai. Set amongst the lush hills of northern Thailand, bustling Chiang Mai is the destination for your first week of the project here in Asia.
Temples and markets are to be found around every corner, making it the perfect balance of hospital work experience abroad and cultural immersion.
During your middle weekend, you’ll visit an elephant sanctuary in Chiang Mai before the group takes a short flight to Bangkok to spend your second week.
Hospital experience-wise, we’ll show you several different hospitals during your stay with us in Chiang Mai and Bangkok, from larger private hospitals to smaller, more rural hospitals in the countryside.
Our staff team will collect you at Bangkok Suvarnabhumi International Airport (BKK) anytime between 8 am and 6 pm on the Sunday you start.
After you have enrolled for our work experience abroad, you’ll gain access to your Premed Portal webpage. Here you can read more extensive project notes and also let us know details of your arrival, such as flight numbers and timings etc.
At our Thailand medical work experience project, we aim to provide you with comfortable and secure accommodation throughout your stay. We understand that a peaceful place to unwind after a fulfilling day of medical work in Bangkok and Chiang Mai is essential for our participants.
Just like our other work experience courses, our accommodation is designed to offer plenty of space for socialising, relaxation, and making you feel at home.
All our accommodation in Thailand is equipped with 24/7 security to ensure your safety during your hospital work experience abroad. We provide comfortable rooms to make your stay as pleasant as possible.
During your time in Thailand, you can look forward to:
We’re committed to ensuring your medical work experience in Thailand is both educational and enjoyable, and our accommodation plays a key role in making this happen.
Experience Local Cuisine:
One of the most famous countries in the world for food, Thailand has a rightly deserved reputation for culinary excellence. We’ll introduce you to Thailand with a bowl of Khao Soi, noodles bathed in a curry broth and topped with satisfying crunchy noodles. Slurping definitely allowed.
We also know that sometimes you just want your home comforts so you will have a choice of some more familiar meals too should you wish.
You’ll, of course, get a full breakfast each morning and a selection of pastries and fresh fruits to get you all set up for a long day of hospital placement.
Our staff can cater to a range of dietary requirements and will rustle up thick luxurious green chicken curries, still-sizzling satay sticks, fresh and zesty bowls of Pad Thai and the most colourful salads you’ve ever seen. Thailand’s also a great place to be a vegetarian, with beautifully prepared vegetable curries and tangy BBQ tofu all there to tempt you.
We’ll even get you involved at a Thai cookery school, too. So sharpen up those cookery skills, and hopefully, when you return home, you’ll have learnt more than just healthcare.
It wouldn’t be a trip to Thailand without getting involved in some of the amazing street food too. There’s some weird and wonderful food to be had in markets and lining the streets of Chiang Mai, and our staff team knows the best places to try.
During your weekend, you’ll spend the day at an elephant rescue centre. Feed and exercise the elephants in the jungle under the watchful eye of their carers before bathing them in a mountain stream. All of this is included in your hospital work experience package!
And just like that, you’ve spent 2-weeks in 6 different hospitals, had over 32 hours of medical work experience, met lifelong friends from all over the world and had insight into your future career that few others can boast.
Your Project manager is called Carrie (on the far left), and she grew up in Austin, Texas, USA.

Ably assisted by (from left to right) May, Rose, Jao and Bent and a comprehensive team of hospital coordinators, transport coordinators, security and catering teams. Our team will ensure you have a safe trip and get more hospital work experience than you ever thought possible.

You’ll only need extra for snacks, lunches and souvenirs.
