Providing opportunities to deepen your understanding
One of the most exciting parts of your medical training at Hull York Medical School is your elective. You will carry out a six-week elective at the beginning of your final year when you’ll have the chance to travel abroad or work in a specialist service in the UK.
Students find their electives a hugely educational, enjoyable and rewarding experience. You'll gain invaluable clinical experience in locations where you can help make a difference to both the hospitals or practices and the lives of those living in the local communities.
You will encounter an environment that is very different from a regular medical course and medical issues that stretch your current understanding, giving you the opportunity to reflect on your professional and personal development.
