Broaden your horizons and learning experiences by undertaking your electives and core clinical placements overseas.

You'll gain exposure to clinical and cultural experiences not commonly experienced in Australia. 

From the hills of Nepal to the heart of Europe, UQ Medicine has partnered with organisations around the world to give our medical students the opportunity to gain knowledge and experiences that can't be bought. 

You can complete an overseas placement for your Year 1 Observership or during Phase 2 for a placement. UQ Medicine also offers competitive group clinical Study Tours in Year 1.

Or, if you've completed year 2 of your medical degree, and you're keen to set yourself apart from the crowd, consider undertaking an optional elective in one of your timetabled breaks. Optional electives do not earn you credit towards your medical degree, but they are a great opportunity to boost your clinical training and to add a valuable life experience to your curriculum vitae.

In addition to UQ Medicine's partners opportunities may exist with other organisations that have signed a UQ Overarching Student Placement Agreement (N.B. a fee may be charged for these placements).
