Medical Electives to Kenya

Get in touch

Taking your elective to Kenya will provide you with a unique opportunity to experience the delivery of health services in a very different setting. The aim of our elective placements is to give you an exciting opportunity to work within the healthcare team who are tasked with delivering healthcare services with limited resources in both medical supplies and technology. You will be faced with new challenges and be forced to think outside of the box.

It is this learning and personal development opportunity that sets electives abroad in such high stead. You will have seen how medical care in a developing country overcomes issues you would often never seen in the NHS and you will have plenty of opportunities to learn from your clinical supervisor.

There is little to no resource available, but they make with what they have… the resilience and strength of the doctors, nurses, patients and families is something truly amazing. The clinical rotations at the hospital were well negotiated as the program went on allowing a personalized program which catered for my learning goals. Being able to see how medicine is practised in a setting different from my home country was a worthwhile experience. The opportunity to practice hands-on medicine under supervision and guidance was a highlight of the program for me.
