    Hi,
    I'm an undergrad at Monash wondering if anyone has done an elective in Brisbane, their experiences & how to go about applying for them.
    Thanks!

    What is the time period of your elective?

    I am sure you could just contact some of the bigger hospitals directly. (Princess Alexandra, Royal Brisbane Hosp). If you want sunshine and to be near the beaches then contact the Gold Coast Hospital. (That is where I would go. The 1st year elective doesn't really mean too much in the big scheme of things so you may as well be as close to the beach and surfing as possible). Brisbane is 1hr + away from the decent beaches.

    You could contact the University of Qld Med school. They will probably take a long time to respond though.

    Thanks!
    I want to have my elective at the end of next year and they usually last for 6 weeks.

    Hi carmen - I go to UQ. Check out the UQ Med Soc website - there's a good guide on electives there: http://uqms.org/component/option,com_wrapper/Itemid,306/

    If you have heaps of trouble finding somewhere, let me know and I'll see if I can get some contacts for ya. All the best.
