    Is/ has anyone else taken part in a gap year and gone on a medical/dentistry work placement abroad?
    I'm going to thailand in May for 2 months- does anyone know how to get travel insurance that covers placement in a hospital?

    Thanks!

    I've moved this into the current med students and doctors forum (left a redirect in the dentistry forum) as I think you're more likely to get a response from someone in here (we've got more med students and doctors on TSR than dentists).

    STA travel used to do it, but that was for med students on their electives. I'm not sure what the situation for gap year students would be.

    Wesleyan do specific insurance for medical/dental electives.
