About the country

Location of the place

The Clinic of Geriatrics in Łódź, 40 minutes by tram from the dormitories/city centre


Łódź (central part of the country)

Surroundings (possible trips, ...)

Since the city is located in the middle of the contry it's easy and to get to basically any playce in Poland as well as countries around (Warsaw, Kraków, Wrocław, Poznań...)



Prof. dr hab. med. Tomasz Kostka, the head of the Clinic of Geriatrics

Work description

Shadowing doctors, discussing patients' pharmacotherapy, introducing data to database, basic statistics, visiting other departments, physical examination of patients taking part in an experiment called SCOPE (Comprehensive Geriatric Assessment)

Salary (sufficient for local conditions?)

Since the accommodation was free the salary was sufficient.

Language requirements

English is enough but knowing basic Polish was a huge advantage, I was able to communicate with patients by myself

Accommodation (price, who provided it)

Dormitories, double room, free of charge, provided by the Medical University

Social life

Meeting IAESTE members (pick-up at the airport, organized events...)

Every trainee had a buddy/buddies from IAESTE to take care of her/him. I got three sweet girls who picked me up in the airport, helped me anyime I needed, took me to dinner, we grabbed beer, went to a rope center... There was taken really good care of me :)

Meeting other foreign students

Everyone lived in the same dormitories so it was easy to catch up with all the other students.

Sport and culture

There are many sport opportunities (gyms, pools, dance centres - I recommend a lot to take dance classes, price is low and quality very high....)

Food, local specialties

I consider Polish food very tasty but it's individual ;)

Other information

Possibilites to communicate with the Czech Republic

Not needed

Recommendations for students who will go to the same place

Always buy ticket while using public transport. There are many ticket inspectiors and they are not willing to discuss.

What not to forget with you

No need to bring anything (foodstuff, cosmetics...) cause everything is accessible and cheap in Poland.

Benefits of the internship

Great professional experience, new friendships, nex culture and country explored.

Cooperation with IAESTE in the foreign country

Very easy, I got answers to all my questions immediately, someone was always wondering if everything is all right, if there are any problems.

Overall experience with IAESTE

Amazing! 100 % recommended!
