student on placement
For six weeks in Year Four you will undertake an elective project in a setting of your choice.

You have the opportunity to study a field of healthcare or human health of your choice in some more depth. Students often choose to undertake their projects outside the UK, to observe how medicine is practiced in another country and to experience a different social, cultural and physical environment.

Students from other institutions

We do not currently additionally negotiate for places for students from other institutions with our healthcare partners. Those partners are, however, at liberty to accept additional students if they wish and should be approached directly.

Specifically, our teaching hospitals are:

  • University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire NHS Trust
  • Warwick Hospital
  • George Eliot Hospital
  • The Alexandra Hospital in Redditch

Community placements are arranged via Coventry Teaching Primary Care Trust.

Any correspondence should be addressed to the undergraduate coordinator.
