Exchange opportunities

I'm just wondering do students have any exchange opportunity with universities in other countries during the five years?

@life of pi can probably tell you more, but as far as I know, most universities offering medicine in Australia, including Monash, give their students the opportunity of an elective placement in overseas countries. The main caveat is that you will have to arrange these placements and pay for all associated costs yourself.

Hey! There are a few opportunities, although not sure if they will still be around with the new MD system (I suspect most will still be around):
- Doing a semester in Monash Malaysia during late preclin and early clin years
- Doing a semester in Sweden during 4th year
- 6 week overseas elective during final year, anywhere in the world
- Doing one or more normal rotations in final year at Monash Malaysia
- Taking a year off to do a BMedSc(Hons) overseas, Monash has established partnerships with unis such as Oxford

There are probably other options but these ones come to mind rn :)

Thank both of you.:)

I know similar opportunities exist at UTAS, too (a friend just got back from an elective in India and had been tossing up between there and somewhere in South America, Chile I think it was), so coupled with Pi's Monash info, I'd say this is common to all Universities.
