Hello!

MEET THE TRY MEDICS PEOPLE

Try Medics aim to broaden young people’s perspective on global health care and be the main vehicle of establishing positive cross-cultural relations within the medical field.

We accomplish this by giving high school and university students the possibility to gain medical experience by shadowing hospital personnel abroad.
