Health and Medicine Gap Programs
If you're thinking of medicine or health care as a career, a gap year can help you decide about a focus, or even if it's the right choice. Programs concentrate on medicine, nursing and community health, as well as veterinary and equine medicine. There are pre-med and health-care gap years in the Czech Republic, Tanzania, Uganda, Kenya and other overseas locations, as well as in the United States. You can explore working in an ICU or concentrating in anesthesiology or infectious diseases, for example. Medical gap programs come in all schedules and budgets.
