Medicine is the only profession that allows me to simultaneously help people while pushing my mental limits. It tests the limits of human compassion, memory, physical stamina, and resilience. And it is a nod back to the exact feelings I had as that five year old kid who wanted to become a doctor. My dream is now a reality, thanks to ANC Medical Placements.

It was just the right time when I found out about ANC MEDICAL PLACEMENTS through social media sites like Facebook and Instagram and through friends. The counseling session they have on our first visit to get information on studying abroad turned out to be a good guideline and thus extremely helpful, as ,they take all our likes and dislikes into account.

The medical field has inspired me since childhood. Growing up with the passion to be a Doctor, I realized my connection to service- growing through the years. I grew up with belief in my passion and faith in my abilities to strive in the field. Having completed my Advanced Level Examinations, I and my parents decided to choose a Foreign Medical University to pursue my Medical Degree. Coming across ANC MEDICAL PLACEMENTS - the medical placement division of ANC, I & my parents approached the placement organization for assistance. They have been keen on guiding me from day one- from laying out options, choosing suitable universities, shortlisting and applying until all final processes were completed.

All my life I have been looking forward to practice medicine. Since I was a kid I always wanted to be a superhero, and what better way to be a superhero than be a doctor. So once I was ending my school life I was searching for the perfect path and I found ANC Medical Placements. People there were so nice to me and they guided me through all my troubles and cleared all my doubts when I was in a blur. So I’m very thankful that I found ANC Medical Placements Study Medicine. They saved me a lot of money and I’m thankful for that because at that very hard moment in my life my dad was having trouble with money. Once I came to Belarus I got good rooms as promised and I did not have any problems. So I’m happy that I was directed to ANC Medical Placements and I hope that it continues to help the future generations to come.
