Medical Electives

Hospitals in developing countries are often short staffed with high patient loads, so our students find themselves involved with treatment and patient care very quickly. Under resourced wards can also mean a return to the basics of healthcare provision, diagnosing and treating conditions without the laboratory or medical equipment you might be used to.

Our medical electives also offer great opportunity to see cases that are seldom, if ever, found in the UK. Whether you are interested in tropical diseases such as malaria, leprosy or dengue fever, or wish to focus on specific areas like oncology in Africa, this is a great chance to expand your medical knowledge.

Unfortunately cost, distance and a lack of education in resource-poor countries means patients regularly present themselves with diseases or pathologies that have advanced to a critical stage. The chance to witness and treat these conditions will undoubtedly teach you new skills and enhance your understanding of disease progression.

Our medical student elective placements are designed to meet the requirements of all major British medical schools and are supported by the MPS.
