A bit about us…

Work the World is the leading provider of medical, dental, nursing, midwifery and physiotherapy electives and placements in Africa, Asia and South America.

We have an experienced and knowledgeable team in the UK head office, as well as in each of our overseas destinations, providing you with a 24/7 support network and lots of advice and guidance, both before you leave and while you are away. We make sure your placement is efficiently organised and matches your interests, and also sort out all in-country logistics. All you need to focus on is enjoying the experience!

Ethical practice

With many of our programmes taking place in the developing world, we have a social and moral responsibility to maximise the benefits and minimise the negative impact wherever we can.

* We employ local people overseas rather than expatriates wherever it is practical to do so. This not only supports local economies, but also helps to bridge the cultural divide between us and our partner hospitals and communities.
* We actively support social development initiatives overseas, both through projects run by elective students in their spare time and with financial donations. You can read more about this in our blog.
* We try to purchase as much as we can for our programmes from local producers; whether it’s the bed you sleep in or the bread you eat for breakfast, chances are it was made in the town where we’re based.
* We use local public transport whenever it is safe and reasonably convenient to do so, helping to conserve the environment as well as helping the economy.

We’re always open to suggestions, so if you see something that we could do better, please contact us.

Dental electives

Your dental elective is a fantastic opportunity to travel the world, making the most of the time you have available to by using and developing skills alongside professional dentists.

Our dental student elective placements meet the requirements of most British dentistry schools. They include:

* A guaranteed clinical placement, organised by our professional staff in your chosen country
* Freedom to choose your preferred specialities, arrival and departure dates
* A placement supervisor who will oversee your work in the hospital
* Extensive pre-departure support from your dedicated project manager, with advice on visas, support letters and general preparation
* Meals and secure, comfortable accommodation in a large Work the World house.
* In country support from our well-trained, local staff
* No hassle – we cut through all the red tape so that you can arrive and get stuck straight in

Dental Electives
Choosing your clinical specialities

Our partner hospitals and clinics all offer good opportunities for practical work in general dentistry, such as scaling, extractions, fillings and root canal work. There are also more specialist placements in oral cancer, maxillofacial and surgery.

Read more about potential clinical specialities for each destination through the "available elective placements" links on the side menu and don’t forget – if yours is not listed then call us. We can usually arrange something suitable.

For those dentists that are keen to take part in outreach work, or have more than 2-3 weeks and want to split their placement, we also arrange specialist dental projects in rural areas, screening and treating children with no access to dental healthcare. Read more on our dental outreach page.
Choosing your destination

We have a good relationship with each of the hospitals we work with and most clinical specialities can be accommodated within each destination. This leaves you free to choose between the safari, white-sand beaches and tribal culture of Africa; the intricate temples, colourful festivals and mountains of Asia or the leafy plazas, fine dining and tango of Argentina.
