Welcome to Medical Electives Abroad

Welcome to Medical Electives Abroad


Your medical elective is a wonderful opportunity to develop skills and widen medical interests in a new and unfamiliar location, and many students say it's one of their most memorable experiences. Finding the best location for your elective can be difficult, especially if you wish to travel abroad. Our aim is to provide you with an unforgettable medical elective placement to one of our fantastic overseas projects. As a medical student taking your elective abroad, you will have the opportunities to learn about different healthcare ideas, new hospitals methods and see how doctors abroad cope in less developed conditions. You may also gain experience working with new and uncommon illnesses, not often seen in UK hospitals.


We take care of everything and our aim is to take away the stress involved in planning an overseas elective. We provide accommodation, will pick you up from the airport, and you can feel safe in the knowledge that there will always be a member of our team available to help you, so you are never alone.


Our teams local knowledge allows us to help organise trips and events, whether that is swimming with turtles in the Caribbean to a weekend learning to surf in Sri Lanka. We can also supplement your elective to make sure you are making a real difference, such as running free health fairs in rural areas or helping in local community projects.
