The choice is yours!
Our students have undertaken electives within our region, across the UK, or ventured overseas.
There are many local opportunities in NHS trusts with clinical subspecialties as diverse as infectious diseases and neurosurgery and at universities with local academics who lead in their field.
Further afield in the UK, students have been to organisations such as the Institute of Neurology in London, in rural settings like Fort William and Shetland, and within elite sporting environments.
Our students have also undertaken electives in hospitals and research institutes in locations as far-reaching as Vanuatu, Nepal, Belize, Malaysia, South Africa and with NASA in the USA to name but a few.
How is an elective funded?
The elective is funded by the medical student and associated costs will vary depending on the elective you choose, and whether this is overseas or in the UK.
