Hi everyone,

I am currently planning my electives for next year (Feb 2018) and I would really like to organise it in the neurosurgery department in the Royal Melbourne Hospital in Australia.

Based on the website, to apply for neurosurgery, you needed to email directly to the department. I have done this about 3 weeks ago and still have not heard anything from them. Now, they could have received it and just not want me but would they have emailed back to say that or at least to say they have received my application if its still in processing?

I would really appreciate any input from anyone who has done their electives in Melbourne or/and has done it with the neurosurgery department. And also for any students who are already working in the hospital currently.
