Doing Medical
internship with AIP

Medical Internship

The medical industry is the most stable, and constant, industry in today’s ever changing employment market. The medical industry is extremely competitive, so it is imperative to stand out amongst all applicants. An excellent way to make sure your resume gets noticed is by doing an international medical internship.

As an intern in the medical industry, you will be responsible for various tasks, most of which are assisting the physician with procedures in the operating room and other areas of the hospital or clinic as recommended by a clinical attending physician. Needless to say, you will get a chance to experience the medical field first hand, under the mentorship of a professional, and licensed, medical official. Ultimately, your professional work in the medical world will expand after getting the chance to meet doctors with expertise in different areas.

Your international internship in the medical industry, through Asia Internship Program, will be perfectly suited for you based on your requirements and specifications. With our extensive network of startups, SMEs, and large corporate companies in Asia, we are sure to find the perfect company for you.

Past AIP medical interns have been involved and worked on the following projects:

  • Make patient rounds, or see patients in the clinic, in coordination with the supervising physician.
  • Advise patients as instructed by the physician.
  • Assist with H&Ps, progress notes, and discharge summaries by getting them ready and reviewing them with the supervising physician.
  • Provide insight, from a medical perspective, to the supervising physician.
  • Assist in various simulation courses that mirror that of a real world situation.

Note that all AIP interns are given a personal supervisor who will train, monitor and guide you throughout your international internship experience.

Internship tasks will vary from company to company, as well as intern to intern. These are only examples of tasks that were carried out from previous interns.

AIP Medical Internship Benefits

There are various benefits that go beyond just plain “work experience”. An AIP medical internship will allow you to apply what you’ve learned in class to solve real-world solutions.

  • Excellent opportunity to work with professionals- Medical internships give you a chance to work with professional doctors and nurses, who have extensive experience in the field. As a medical, pre-med or nursing student, you can learn a lot by shadowing them, at a hospital or healthcare center, where they have to deal with hundreds of patients, each day.
  • Discover your passion: As an intern at a healthcare center/ hospital, you’ll get to choose your departments ranging from orthopedics to cardiology, gynecology to physiotherapy and many more. While shadowing the doctors in that particular department, you’ll definitely discover your passion in the medical field.
  • Learn about medical conditions around the world- Various medical internships are located in third world countries, in which resources for medical help are extremely limited. This will be a great learning for you to prepare yourself to work in the toughest conditions. You can even interact with the doctors and nurses in order to get a better insight into how things have changed in the country over the years.
  • Take this opportunity to travel: Well, it’s not just about work, but interning abroad also gives you the opportunity to explore a new destination. Instead of a normal tourist, you will be a traveler that is in touch with the locals. You’ll get to understand the culture and lifestyle of another country, eat delicious dishes of the local cuisine as well as explore the heritage sites, monuments, and other popular destinations.
AIP Medical Internship Scope Areas

Depending on their internship requirements and the available internship positions in our partner companies, prospective interns may work in any of the following (or other) disciplines during their medical internship with AIP:

  • A transitional internship is a one-year period immediately following medical school and passing the initial licensing exam. During this transitional internship, the intern serves in a wide variety of medical rotations, including intensive care, emergency medicine and even cardiology.
  • Interns who choose a medical specialty other than general practitioner must spend one or more years under supervision from a licensed physician in that specialty. Various organizations such as the American Medical Association, or the American Academy of Family Physicians really emphasize the number of years of postgraduate training the resident must partake before becoming eligible for board certification. For example, interns must complete four years of internship for pathology and five years for otolaryngology.
  • Students interested in nursing can also complete an internship. The process is much shorter than residency for doctors. Nurses can go through paid internships in specific specialties immediately after graduation, or they may choose an internship if they are an experienced nurse wanting to specialize. Nursing internships may be as short as eight weeks or as long as 20, depending on the specialty and the amount of training involved.
The Demand for Experienced Medical Specialists Worldwide

With the current situations going on in the world, the demand for medical specialists has never been higher. Medical specialists are always needed throughout the world and a medical profession is something that will never go to waste.

If the COVID-19 pandemic has proven anything, it is that the greater the supply of medical specialists, the better off society will be. Strong health is the foundation of life and no one likes getting sick. Whichever medical field you decide to focus on, you’ll be doing a great service for the community and the number of patients that you’ll be attending.

The Role of Physicians in the Economy

Physicians play an extremely crucial role in the state and local economies by providing jobs, purchasing goods and services, and acting as state and community public programs through generated tax revenues.

When clinical and administrative staffers work with physicians, they are often in positions that are stable and well paid. Physicians compensate their employees well, which results in them being able to purchase services from other industries in the state, and therefore stimulate their state economy.
