About the conference

The electives conference is an annual event held by the Medical Schools Council Electives Committee. It brings together medical school elective leads, charitable and national bodies and medical students who have recently returned or will shortly begin a medical elective placement.

The theme for this year’s conference is “Electives - value for money, value for life.” It will explore not only whether an elective is good value for money, but the effect it has on participants skills, career goals and understanding of medicine.

The conference is being held on Friday 23 November 2018 from 10am – 4.00pm at Woburn House, 20 Tavistock Square, London, WC1H 9HD. Lunch and refreshments will be provided.

The conference is also open to medical students who will not be presenting. If you are interested in attending, please contact
