Welcome to the Medical Electives Programme
Due to the high number of applications we are currently receiving from students wishing to undertake an elective here in Sheffield, we have temporarily closed the process. We hope to reopen these pages in May 2019.
There are currently three placements per month available through the University of Sheffield elective programme.
The University of Sheffield and the Sheffield Hospital NHS Foundation Trust (STH) are offering three elective placements per month to undergraduate medical students in their clinical years of study. These placements are not for qualified junior doctors.
Placements will be in a variety of departments and will run for four weeks starting from the first Wednesday of each month. We are working closely with the STH to develop exciting and academically robust elective placements. The University of Sheffield Medical School will oversee the initial application process and then pass your application to the STH to complete the process.
We have tried to provide as much information as possible on this website regarding elective placements here in Sheffield. Please use the links on the left side of the screen to view all the important information.
If the information provided on this website doesn't answer your query, please contact either the University of Sheffield's Elective Office at email@example.com or Hayley Barlow (firstname.lastname@example.org) in the Medical Education Department of the STH.
Please note that current Sheffield MBChB students should not apply through this mechanism and should contact the Electives Coordinators, Casey Smallwood (email@example.com) or Jo Hill (firstname.lastname@example.org).
