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 specialism in a different healthcare environment as part of your degree.
Our elective placements are four weeks long and commence at the start of the month and conclude at the end of the same month, for example 1 January to 31 January.
