    I am hoping to do a medical elective next summer (July/August) in Australia, Adelaide in particular. However I'm finding it hard to find information on electives for visiting students. Has anyone done an elective in Adelaide before and have any advice? Or anywhere else in Australia?

    Thanks for any advice

    Have you tried MDU's elective network? That's always a great place to start. You have to be a member to view it, but it's really worth it, gives you a good place to start. Otherwise just Google 'place + elective + medicine' e.g. http://lmgtfy.com/?q=adelaide+elective+medicine

    Without a direct contact I believe you have to go via the associated university/medical school of each place/region for Australian electives. It may be that the University of Adelaide isn't offering electives currently. Plenty of other places in Australia though. As person above says, just Google and you will find numerous ones to apply to - that's what I did and I'm now all planned to go to Sydney for 8 weeks. Search broadly "Australia" or specific cities/territories. Change up similar words, e.g. "electives/clerkship/placements". Else just use The Elective Network and browse via hospital (though generally you will apply through a university).
