Welcome to Medical Electives Abroad Sri Lanka!

Your Medical elective is a wonderful opportunity to develop skills and widen medical interests in a new and unfamiliar location, and many students say it's one of their most memorable experiences. Finding the best location for your elective can be difficult, especially when you wish to travel abroad. Our aim is to provide you with an unforgettable medical elective placement on the beautiful island of Sri Lanka. We take care of everything from your accommodation and placement to recommending trips, the best places to eat and running social events.

As a medical student taking your elective abroad, you will have the opportunities to learn about different healthcare ideas, new hospitals methods and see how doctors abroad cope in less developed conditions. You may also gain experience working with new and uncommon illnesses, not often seen in European hospitals. Sri Lanka has some of the best safaris in the world, eight world heritage sites, and stunning white sand beaches. You are sure to have an unforgettable time on your elective.

Our goal is to make planning your elective placement as easier and stress free as possible. MEA was created by a doctor, so we know how difficult it can be to juggle planning your elective and studying for your degree, especially in your final year. That's why we take care of everything for you.

We plan your placement, pick you up from the airport, provide accommodation and food, organise transport to and from your placement hospital, and have a 24/7 support structure in place. We can help advice you pre departure and are happy to fill out references on your return. Our team can help recommend the best trips and excursions, and we have a range of additional projects that you can add onto your elective to make it a truly unforgettable experience.
