Elective Destinations

Our destinations have been chosen to ensure a once in a lifetime trip




Sri Lanka


The support given by MEA was excellent, offering transfers, help with accommodation and getting set up on the island. The team, Khari especially, were extremely approachable.

I really enjoyed the hospital placement offered. It was perfectly weighted so we could go into placement and learn how medicine is practised in Saint Vincent as well as take days off for trips to enjoy what the island had to offer.

There were several highlights of the elective, these included the sunset boat cruise and excursions to Tobago cays to snorkel with turtles.

I would definitely recommend taking an elective with MEA. It’s a once in a lifetime opportunity which offered both a medical elective and holiday experience.
