MD Elective (MDMP5409)
UNIT OF STUDY
The Elective Term offers students an opportunity to undertake supervised experience in clinical work, community medicine or research, locally, interstate or anywhere in the world. It is an opportunity to prepare for a particular career direction, explore different experiences or enhance skills in particular areas of a student's own choice. Students usually organise their own Elective Terms but if advice or assistance is needed students can contact the Head of their Clinical School, the Director of Elective Studies or the Elective Administrative Officer in the Office of Medical Education.
