Video and Photos


This project offers the chance to be become part of a mobile medical unit or work in a children’s hospital in the medieval city of Brasov. If you really want to create fantastic medical work experience, you can opt for both!

On the medical unit, you will be offering support and medical care to over 100 patients who have mobility issues, are elderly, or that have been discharged from hospital and need ongoing care. Tasks will include taking blood pressure, dressing wounds, basic physiotherapy and administering medication.

In the children’s hospital you will be shadowing a team of passionate nurses and doctors helping to take care of children, many of whom have been abandoned and require mental therapy as well as physical.

Oyster provides comfortable accommodation in the city which is located in reach of exciting restaurants, bars and shops.
