Clinical Electives

Clinical electives are accepted from overseas and UK undergraduate medical students. The students must be in their final year of a degree in Medicine. Clinical electives are available for a maximum of eight weeks.

We do not accept students on the ERASMUS exchange programme.

Please note NANIME is not responsible for organising electives for UEA (University of East Anglia) students. UEA students should contact the UEA Norwich Medical School.

Prospective students should email the NANIME clinical electives, including:

  • Name, university and graduation year
  • An up-to-date copy of their CV.
  • Their preferred dates.
  • Their preferred speciality/department ( At least two choices)


Clinical electives are arranged by Sophie Hickford, Student Coordinator in NANIME on behalf of the Trust. It should be noted that there is a procedure laid down by the Department of Health that is followed.

All students will need to show photographic ID on arrival.

A £500.00 administration fee is charged for all clinical electives. This should be paid by cash, cheque or card on the first day of the elective to NANIME.
