Medical Electives Abroad

At Medical Electives Abroad our aim is to offer the best destinations to medical students. We were founded by a doctor and therefore know first hand what makes a success elective. We aim to take away the stress involved in organising your elective placement, taking care of your hospital placement, your accommodation, making sure someone is there to meet you at the airport, having staff available 24/7, and even recommending the best trips and place to visit while you're away.


Below we have our two elective projects; MEA Sri Lanka and MEA Caribbean. Both offer you a unique and exciting elective, with some amazing trips like swimming with turtles, safaris, surfing weekends, whale watching and more. Each project has a dedicated website, so follow the links below to find out more.

Sri Lanka is an amazing destination to pick for your elective! With so much to see and do from whales watching and safaris to huge festivals and weekends learning to surf. We can also add on additional projects such as working on community programs and turtle conservation.

The Caribbean will offer you an unforgettable elective experience. You will be faced with a totally new challenge and gain an insight into medical care in developing countries. We can help arrange trips such as hiking volcano and discovering hidden waterfalls to boat trips and swimming with turtles.
