School Trips - Pre-med experience in India

Oyster Worldwide

Home / Trips Abroad / Pre-med experience in India

Oyster Worldwide has been sending groups and individuals around the world on immersive and structured projects since 2006. We have travelled the world to hand-pick the best projects out there, so you can be assured that you are going somewhere ethical, fun and supportive.

We work closely with project partners to tailor the trip to suit your needs, and support you every step of the way with phone call, email and in-person support. We offer a visit to your school / college to deliver an information evening to parents, a pre-departure course to students and a due diligence meeting with organisers. We can take care of flights, travel insurance, transfers - just ask what you need, and we shall do our best to provide it.

Why should you consider Oyster Worldwide for School Trips and Educational Visits?

trip icon

This trip is a wonderful way for students to step out of their comfort zone and develop as individuals whilst being supported every step of the way. Your students may have experience of volunteering in the UK in a medical setting, but travelling and learning abroad can develop many skills.

The skills that students can expect to develop on a medical trip to India would be:

- Confidence - to gain experience in India requires some confidence in the first place, but it is also an opportunity to build confidence and bring students out of their comfort zone, away from their home comforts
- Team work - students will be helping each other and learning things that they have never done before
- World view - learn about life in a country that is very different to our own and be able to take that knowledge on into further studies - particularly gaining an understanding of a completely different medical system
- Appreciation of other cultures

You and your group will be accommodated in twin-room hotel accommodation in South Delhi, close to the placement hospital.

Three meals a day are included (apart from two lunches on the Golden Triangle tour).

Which Curriculum Subjects do you cater for?

This project will take students away from the core Science curriculum. Instead, it is designed to give students an insight into life in medicine. This will take place through shadowing doctors and nurses in various hospital wards, and lectures on the Indian medical system.
