Undergraduate medical students will have the opportunity to undertake clinical electives at Epworth HealthCare sites as part of their medical training. We have medical students from the University of Melbourne, Monash University and Deakin University on rotation.
There are clinical elective placements in a variety of specialities offered across our sites. Clinical electives at Epworth allow students to explore chosen medical or surgical disciplines, in a setting differing from that of their primary training. Clinical electives are supervised by specialists in a range of disciplines.
Students may be provided the opportunity to attend ward rounds, tutorials, lectures, operations, and the chance to interview and examine patients (subject to variation according to the selected discipline).
The undergraduate medical student teaching program is coordinated by the Director of Medical Education, with the assistance of the Medical Student Coordinator and Epworth's Professors of Rehabilitation Medicine, Medicine and Surgery.
