The McNeil Medical Centre is a safe, friendly community to do your medical elective at -it’s in Rural Western Ugandan. It was funded by donations mainly from the UK, and finally opened early in 2014. We’re offering placements to students seeking medical electives abroad.

The developing world is excellent in showcasing innovative approaches to medicine in a different work and life cultures. Read the testimonial by a medical student.
