Do a unique medical elective with us and learn directly from doctors in real-world situations. You'll intern in medical facilities like hospitals and clinics, where you'll see diseases and conditions you've only read about in textbooks before.
We currently offer seven different elective placements for university students, including:
You can specify which clinical placement department you’d like to work in when you apply.
Nursing students, for example, could specialise in adult or paediatric nursing. Medical students can choose from a range of options, including A&E, Orthopaedics, and Obstetrics. Some students prefer to rotate around a number of different departments. If you’re doing dental electives abroad, you can work in either a dental unit within a large hospital or a dedicated dental practice. Unsure of what to do?

Working in a limited-resource environment will show you how doctors and nurses come up with creative solutions to medical problems. As you gain medical work experience abroad, you can also expect to improve your communication skills, something critical for a career in medicine.
