Electives In Singapore






Whether you are a Singaporean returning home for electives and peripherals, or an overseas applicant looking to experience the local flavour of healthcare, Singapore's hospitals provide a wide range of clinical and surgical disciplines in which they accept medical students who are already in their clinical years for short-term training attachments.

Application is typically made through the National University of Singapore's Special Clinical Electives Programme portal, and have to be registered at least 6 months in advance to be considered. A comprehensive list of available postings and the hospitals offering them can be found here. Applicants to the SingHealth cluster may contact them here, and applicants to Tan Tock Seng Hospital (part of the NHG cluster) may make enquiries here.

UK-based medical students with a valid MDU membership number receive free access to The Electives Network, which provides useful profiles onĀ Singapore and its hospitals that students have previously been attached to.
