Hello everyone!  My name is Joan Micha and I did my dental elective in Nepal for 4 weeks. I split my time between Pokhara and Kathmandu because I wanted to experience dental in both the city and the rural parts of a news country I have never been to. Kathmandu was very developed...

Everyone that asks me wants to know mainly about how the food was, the hospital was good or not, doctors helpful or not, mentor, the accommodation was safe and nice, and was there WIFI...

I was a bit apprehensive about doing an overseas elective placement but I’m I glad I went because it was an eye-opening experience that changed me for the better. A friend of mine told me about Elective International and after talking about it with my family took the elective at the beginning of my fourth year...

Elective International has a great program in Kenya, hands down. I wasn’t expecting to get nearly as much work as I did but was in for a shock.  A great, life-changing shock. The midwifery program exposed me to so much I wouldn’t have learned if I hadn’t chosen Kenya as an elective destination. I met so many amazing people and got hand-on experience I know has made me a better...

I was about to do my fourth year and interested in an elective placement overseas when a friend recommended Elective International. I’d heard the name but didn’t know much about it. So I went online to find out more and got really interested. The good thing about EI is that they got back to me right away. In high school I made friends...

I’ve always wanted to work overseas, but until I found out about Elective International I didn’t think I’d get the chance. I was about to enter my final year and you need to do a two-month elective. I was in the library googling and came across this amazing program and thought, oh well, it’s worth a try. And I’m so glad I did. It’s the best experience of my life...

I’ve always wanted to go to Kenya and when I found out I could do my elective there I just knew I had to. The Elective International staff was very helpful when it came to planning out my elective. I found this a huge relief being on the other side of the planet knowing when I got there everything would be taken care of.

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.
