Summer Clinical Electives:

During these four to six weeks of elective training, students will be involved in all aspects of patient care, will spend time on the wards and clinics, and take part in the teaching/learning, and research activities at the host institute. Students are encouraged to be creative in their selection of clinical electives. They should choose discipline that would be complimentary to the specialty of major interest (i.e. for an interest in Orthopaedic Surgery, an experience in Radiology and/or Anaesthesia would provide excellent complimentary experience).

Students get paired up with a principal investigator or research mentor from the domain, specialty or project of their interest and in addition to lab work and experience with real world research projects, they get to interact and collaborate with renowned subject experts and many students even earn co-authorship or acknowledgment in articles submitted for professional publications.
