Electives

Electives

Electives are short-term placements where medical students can learn by assisting in real healthcare situations. It is an opportunity to be completely independent in deciding where in the world you would like to go to study any aspect of medicine of particular interest. The possibilities are bounded only by the extent of one’s imagination and initiative. The experience will be what you make it: from carrying out research on mountain medicine in a rural Himalayan clinic or measuring risks of sunburn on Bondi beach and might also include shadowing in hospitals abroad. These electives are organised by the students themselves and the majority vary between two and twelve weeks, however that doesn't mean you can't stay for longer!
