We have one of the most popular premed exposure programs judging by the learning experience and satisfaction of our past participants. Whether looking to join medical school in the US, the UK, or any other country, our program will be invaluable preparation for you and should be distinguishing in the personal statement section of your AMCAS or UCAS application, or whichever application process in your respective country. The AAMC suggests that for admission to US medical schools, “applicants should consider volunteering at a local hospital or clinic to gain practical experience in the health professions” – this suggestion is obviously applicable to all applicants to all medical schools and we believe our premed program is tremendously useful to this end.
Check out our resources for the different learning experiences by our past students. We have programs in Kenya and Tanzania for Premeds.
Our program gives a real life exposure of what it means to be a doctor, which is critically important for someone contemplating a medical career.
This program is suited to aspiring medical students. Our program provides real life exposure of what it means to be a doctor, which is critically important for someone contemplating a medical career and medical school application.
Our program offers the following:
In terms of exposure, we try to give premeds exposure to as many clinical fields as possible:
You will be taken for ward rotations in a manner that helps you attain real life exposure and integrating theoretical knowledge. You will observe the supervising doctors and consultants to enable you draw and understanding of diverse aspects relating to cared of patients such as relevant history taking in various body systems, physical examination, relevant laboratory investigations and their interpretation, arriving at pertinent diagnosis and appropriate treatment measures.
One of Elective Africa’s key differentiators is that we have developed relationships not just with the healthcare institutions we place you in, but we also with professionals that we will assign you to. This is a huge differentiator between our placements and other placements. Our professional mentors are people who we know and we have evaluated and are comfortable with the quality of their mentorship based of feedback from past participants.
The first step in the process is to submit an application at http://www.electiveafrica.com/apply. There is no cost or commitment to submitting an application. We will email you back as soon as possible with all the details that you require to make that decision for the medical volunteering trip to Africa.
We also organise for the students safari add ons at the end of the program to parks in either Kenya or Tanzania, including a hike to Mt. Kilimanjaro. See the safari link at http://electiveafrica.com/safari
