Protection for your elective starts here

Whether you choose to stay in the UK or travel abroad for your elective, you’re in for an exciting and challenging time. This will be your first chance to exercise the skills and knowledge you’ve learned over the last few years, and to experience life in a new environment.

While some aspects of planning your trip might seem complicated, one thing really doesn’t have to be: your elective protection.

Almost everywhere will require you to have elective protection, including institutions in the UK. But, as you’re a member of Medical Protection, we offer support for your elective completely free.

Amazing elective, taking it all in sat in an old colonial coffee plantation with a beer looking down over a rainforest is one of the best memories of my medical school days. Remember to check your change, don’t have ice in your drinks, don’t eat salad, you can stay vegetarian if needed, and don’t eat roadside food. You’ll still get ill!

We ended up as a group in Beirut, Lebanon. It was a fantastic trip, and the culture of a different health care system and the ethical issues that were raised really were an eye opener. We saw HIV-infected patients who had been exposed to contaminated blood products in the 1980s (our project was on haemophiliacs). Incredible visit.
