Notes about Clinical Electives

  • Students who commenced the MD course prior to 2014 must successfully complete the following hurdle requirement in order to qualify for the Doctor of Medicine (MD): Students will be expected, with the assistance of their clinical school, to find and confirm an elective place of four weeks duration at some point prior to graduation from the course. It is anticipated that the majority of students will complete this elective in the summer break between first and second year, second and third year, or third and fourth year of the program.
