Clinical Elective Placements

At OUCRU we host 5-8 medical students per year to undertake daily ward rounds at our partnering hospitals, tutorials with faculty with opportunities to write short reviews/case studies.. Students with longer elective periods may apply to go to Hanoi, but generally electives will be offered in HCMC. Our research units are based at the Hospital for Tropical Diseases in Hanoi (Bach Mai Hospital), and the Hospital for Tropical Diseases in Ho Chi Minh City. These are the main referral hospitals for infectious diseases for the north and the south of the country and under the direction of the Health Service and the Ministry of Health Viet Nam.

If you are interested in applying for these studentships please complete the OUCRU Elective Placement Application Form and send it to us with your CV and a letter of introduction/recommendation from your Dean or Head of Department.

We consider applications twice a year in March and September for the following year. The closing date for next applications is  31st Aug 2017 (applying for period from Jan 2018 to Aug 2018) and 28th Feb 2018 (applying for period from Aug 2018-Dec 2018).
