The McNeil Medical Centre is in a Rural Western Ugandan location. 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. Such students can get a good idea of what they may well be doing when they graduate, by shadowing in the nearby government hospital & at our Centre. The developing world is excellent in showcasing innovative approaches to medicine in a different work and life culture. You will also get more chances to take on more responsibility as good doctors and medical students are often harder to come by there. You might find in Uganda that the fourth-year medical students have more hands-on experience, while some of you will have more academic knowledge, so you will both benefit from working together.
We require that the students show copies of their educational standards and results; at what level, details of any relevant experience, such as first aid courses, or St Johns ambulance cadets etc. Testimonials from relevant people will also help secure a placement. We can put your tutors directly in touch with the Administrators or Doctors at the hospital for the purpose of completing and signing off your completed elective.
