Malta is an Archipelago in the Mediterranean between North Africa and Italy. Malta is the largest island and the cultural, commercial and administrative centre, whilst Gozo is the second largest island and is more rural, characterised by fishing, tourism, crafts and agriculture. Comino, the smallest of the trio, has one hotel and is largely uninhabited.

With superbly sunny weather, attractive beaches, a thriving nightlife and 7,000 years of intriguing history, there is a great deal to see and do.

Valletta (or Il-Belt) is the tiny capital of the Mediterranean island nation of Malta established by the Knights of St. John in the 1500s. However placements will be held all throughout the Island, given Malta is so small and easily accessible.

The main psychiatric hospital in Malta is Mount Carmel Hospital in Attard. However, placements can vary according to personal preference, which means that there may be other locations, such as community clinics in different regions of the Island, Karin Grech Hospital in Pieta and Mater Dei Hospital in Birkirkara.
