Coronavirus and student electives

Advice for students planning or changing an elective

Due to uncertainty by many medical students regarding their elective as a result of the current virus outbreak, The Electives Network (TEN) are experiencing an unprecedented high volume of queries.

We are also aware that a number of universities have already cancelled their elective programmes. We advise students planning an elective to contact their university in the first instance for guidance.
