Incoming Technion students to University of Sydney

The Faculty of Medicine at Technion University will nominate one student per year for short term elective placement at the University of Sydney. Students should nominate subspecialty areas of special interest and we will do our best to accommodate individual preferences. The technion student will usually be placed at Royal North Shore Hospital, one of the University of Sydney’s main teaching hospitals. Students will be responsible for their own travel, accommodation and living arrangements and expenses but tuition fees are waived under our agreement.
