Electives

We are the only UK based membership organisation to provide indemnity and operate internationally meaning we are in a unique position to support you on your elective in many countries around the world. Electives can be an exciting time but if you are going abroad you also have to be prepared for the challenges you may face, for example, communication and cultural differences, different standards of risk management and infection control, and adapting to time challenges.

Get in touch

It is vital that you get in touch with us before you travel to ensure we can provide the correct elective protection for your trip.​​ Call the student helpline on 0800 952 0442 or contact your rep
