Clinical Elective Placements

At OUCRU we are happy to host a number of international medical students at our partnering hospital(s) on an observational basis for daily ward rounds.  While a research project cannot be accommodated, students are invited to participate in tutorials with faculty and take the opportunity to write short review articles.

If you are interested in applying for a placement 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. The closing dates for the next application rounds are 31st August 2019 (applying for the period from Jan 2020 to June 2020) and 28th February 2020 (applying for the period July 2020 to December 2020).
