Your elective is the culmination of years of hard work, and for many, it’s a once in a lifetime experience. By choosing to take your medical elective abroad you will have a unique opportunity to experience a whole new culture and work in a medical environment totally alien to what you have been used to.
Your elective is a chance to see a range of advanced and unfamiliar cases, observe practices that challenge what you’ve learned, and see how sociocultural factors impact care. From a lack of what we might consider basic equipment to new way or methods of conducting procedures, you will be exposed to a range of learning and developmental opportunities.
Planning your elective can seem like a daunting task, with some many aspects to consider. That is why we were first set up by a Doctor to help recreate her unforgettable elective placement while removing the hassle and stress of organising it yourself. Problems like finding the right person to contact in a hospital, or their details in the first place. Finding suitable and safe accommodation, and then how to find it from the airport when you arrive. We take care of all of this and more. Our team source your accommodation, correspond with the hospital and work to tailor your medical elective to suit your preferences and specialities. We have our team meet you at the airport and they remain on hand to help throughout your placement.
