Recommendations for undergraduate medical electives: a UK consensus statement
In November 2017, the Electives Committee published Recommendations for undergraduate medical electives: a UK consensus statement in the Medical Education Journal. The aim of the publication is to share experiences and good practice within UK medical schools, and inform and inspire others involved with similar programmes across the globe.
