Visiting Medical Elective


Royal Victoria Hospital, Belfast

Queen's University do not operate an elective program for visiting medical students. You can arrange an elective by contacting the hospital Trusts directly, as they deal with their own intake of students.

Please note that hospitals in the Belfast Trust will not offer electives during Queen's University term time. You may only apply to the Belfast Trust if you wish to undertake an elective during our vacation periods (Christmas and Easter and from June to August). You can however apply to any of the hospitals within the other Trusts to undertake an elective at any time during the year. View Hospital Trust Contacts (pdf).

If you are interested in securing an elective within the Belfast Trust, you must first contact a clinical consultant/director who will agree to supervise you. View Belfast Trust Clinical Managers (pdf). Applications are then processed by the Trust. An application pack is available on their website
