Medical Internships

Medical internships are open only to applicants who are enrolled in a medical degree or have completed a medical degree be it in medicine, Nursing, Dental assistants physiotherapy or paramedics. You would be involved in working in health clinics which could be in villages under the guidance of a qualified Medical Practitioner.  

Interns also are often given the opportunity to demonstrate focusing their personal interests on a specific case, or to solve medical issues under the guidance of medical staff. These experiences give you extremely valuable insight into how practices and department work and how you can tap you’re potential. India is known for medical tourism. Chennai is the capital of medical tourism in the world. Not only will you learn to

Medical Tourism (a.k.a. Health Tourism India) is a developing concept whereby people from world over visit India for their medical and relaxation needs. Most common treatments are heart surgery, knee transplant, cosmetic surgery and dental care. The reason India is a favourable destination is because of its infrastructure and technology in which is in par with those in USA, UK and Europe.

We have alliances with some great health services bodies in India which will give you a great opportunity to do a medical internship in India. With an increasing number of foreign patients flocking to India for treatment, the country could earn Rs 100 billion (US$2.3 billion) through 'Medical Tourism' by 2012, a study has indicated.

According to the study conducted by the Confederation of Indian Industry and McKinsey consultants, last year some 150,000 foreigners visited India for treatment, with the number rising by 15 per cent a year.

The field has such lucrative potential that Indian finance minister some years back; Mr Jaswant Singh called for India to become a “global health destination.” And, with prices at a fraction of those in the US or Britain, the concept will likely have broad consumer appeal – if people can overcome their prejudices about health care in developing countries. Though the quality of health care for the poor in countries like India is undeniably low, private facilities offer advanced technology and procedures on par with hospitals in developed nations. In a corporate hospital, once the door is closed you could be in a hospital in America

There are instances where some of the private practises around the world are referring people to clinics in India  for cosmetic and other procedures and earning referral fees doing that. Whilst this concept of referring people overseas for cosmetic surgery is certainly not new, but the increasing numbers that are pouring into India will make India a global hub for Health Tourism in 5 year’s time.
