STUDENT OPPORTUNITIES

International Student Placements - Medical Electives

We are actively expanding our hospital placements for medical electives. Our intention is to locate Christian hospitals which have an associated Primary Health Care Programme that are situated in either rural or urban environments. At the present moment, we have good placements in Cameroon, Ghana, India and Kenya. Costs for air fare, visas, heatlh insurance, accommodation and meals are standard. There is a student reduction of 50% for additional costs for health checks, preparation, support and debriefing and this currently stands, with the reduction, at £375.
