student electives

A student elective is a golden opportunity to do something different and learn new things. It's a chance to see life and medicine in another setting and to look at the world from a different perspective. For many students, it's an experience that changes the way they live and shapes their future.

Where do I start?

Deciding what to do, where to go and how to get there can seem a daunting task but CMF has lots of resources to help.

If you're planning a trip, have a look at the following nucleus article for important tips:
