University Programs

Are you a university student or staff member looking for an adventurous solution to clinical placement?

In late 2017 following the successful delivery of free primary health clinics for remote communities, we embarked on a trial, Wild Medic 2.0. The program explored how we as a project, could maximise our impact through the utilisation of student teams. Since that time we’ve been building our reputation by collaborating with Australian and New Zealand universities in health care programs and projects internationally that are are safe and flexible, and are designed to meet your university’s program’s needs. 

The Wild Medic programs are designed to support course objectives and meet the academic requirements, whilst the students experience and partake in healthcare programs, develop personnel and professional skills and best of all, have a safe adventure!

Flexible and Safe

Programs can run for 2,3 or 4 weeks and the students will be immersed and involved from day one. Students will be provided flights, insurance, all transport, accommodation, food on project, translators, medical equipment, supervision, relevant permissions, uniforms and leadership. All teams are led by registered health professionals who work collaboratively with local health care specialist. Students develop their critical thinking and problem-solving skills, communication ability and abilities to analyse information whilst broadening their international perspectives on the local regions.

“If you are a student paramedic or nurse looking to travel to Nepal for some clinical exposure and adventure, look into this project. This has been the experience of a lifetime for me and my students. It was so rewarding to provide much needed primary health care to communities who have no access to medical care. The project is so well organised and the support staff are incredible".
