    Minimum # of weeks to do an elective in the UK

    Advertisements



    Does nayone know if you can do a two week elective in the UK or does it have to be 4 weeks?

    Also, for anyone in the UK, do you know which hospitals are near Hendon, Golders green, Edgeware line? Thanks!

    OK are you originally a student in the UK right now, cause if you are, then ofcourse you can do a two week elective in the UK....I have a friend who did 3 two week electives......derm, endo, renal. But if you are flying all the way from the US just to do a two week elective, well they may want you to stay longer.....call bayshore or your student advisor and ask.

    Look at the UK clinical site on the Members page - there is a contact person for UK clinicals. Ask them. But really, it seems strange to try to do one for two weeks - getting housing and paying a security deposit and all that. And it only leaves you with two or three weekends for travel...
