Kenya Medical Elective

I am a sixth year medical student, and I did my elective at Coast Province General Hospital in Mombasa, Kenya. I found it an incredible experience, and Kenya is an amazing place to visit. I would recommend Elective International to anyone wanting to visit Africa on elective.

I travelled alone to Kenya and was really looked after by everyone involved. I was so pleased with how smoothly everything went. Everything from the airport, placement at the hospital, accommodation arrangements, and travel arrangements were made for me. I really appreciate how much effort was put into ensuring I had the best possible experience in Kenya!

This is my second times to visit Kenya thru the EI. I did lots of travelling and got to see most of Kenya. The people here are so friendly, and the country is so beautiful. I can’t wait to come back again! I am so glad I chose Kenya as an elective destination. This was such an out of the world experience. It surpassed any experienced I had ever imagined, and the hands-on experiences were unforgettable. It was an eye opener and an amazing opportunity to see interesting medicine, meet amazing people and do some travelling around a fascinating country. Elective International had a lot to do with making this experience so enjoyable. I had such a fulfilling experience, and I thank Elective International for making every aspect of my program memorable.

Finally, I would like to say a huge thank you for helping to organize a fantastic trip to Kenya! It was an unforgettable trip and I really enjoyed it!

Thank you so much! :)
