We run an elective programme for medical students in their penultimate or final year of study interested in a clinical placement at St George's Hospital. These placements give you the opportunity to explore a particular medical specialty in a different healthcare environment as part of your degree.

Our elective placements are four weeks long and start on the first Monday of the month.  

Medical Elective Availability

Applications for elective placements taking place between January and June 2020 will open in October 2019, when a list of available specialties will be published on our application page. We have no further availability for placements taking place in 2019.

We are unable to split placements between different specialties or dates. If you are interested in more than one elective, you will need to submit a separate application for each four week placement.

Details of how to apply can be found on our application page.
