Bridgetown

Art, music, night life friendly locals who proudly call themselves Bajans, and a rich history make this small colourful country one of the highlights of the Caribbean region and we pride ourselves for having our medical and nursing electives here in this country.

A typical day, if you were to choose this location, would be hospital work followed by relaxing afternoons at some quiet beach enjoying sunsets, which will leave you speechless, or just exploring around with one of our specially tailored tours.

Come join us for your elective and experience this paradise island.

Your accommodation here is private and in a great location near to your elective placement. A member of our team will always be available if you need anything, 24 hours a day.

We have partnered with major hospitals and smaller clinics here, public and private, and we are certain that you will get the most of your medical or nursing elective with us.
