Medical elective

I am a 3rd Year Medical Student, and I really want to do a medical elective in Portugal. Does anyone have any ideas how I can apply? I've tried a few universities and 3rd party groups but none of them seem to offer Portugal as a destination

Have you checked the Electives Network?

All the best with your endeavours! I wanted to enquire whether it is necessary to have a medical elective as part of the resume for someone aspiring to specialise in surgery? I am an international student currently going into 2nd Year med in the UK and the expenses involved are already insane so I only want to invest further in opportunities and activities that really drastically impact my application for surgical training in the future. I'd appreciate any advice in this regard :smile:
