The Royal Melbourne Hospital (RMH) Clinical School coordinates medical elective requests from Australian and overseas medical students in addition to teaching medical students from the University of Melbourne.

The University of Melbourne's Royal Melbourne Hospital Clinical School works in partnership with the RMH to coordinate all incoming medical student elective placements.

Our placements are only available to actively enrolled medical students who are in the final 2 years of their medical degree. The length of electives are a minimum of 2 weeks and a maximum of 8 weeks.

We do not offer electives in paediatrics, obstetrics or gynaecology placements. For information on these placements, see the University of Melbourne Medical School Clinical Elective website.
