Electives Overseas Student

Our Department offers elective attachments in anaesthesia, intensive care and pain management for medical students attending overseas universities. Students are normally accepted for a period of 2 to 4 weeks. We accept up to three students at any one time. We prefer students entering their last two years of study. 

During term time (July to Feb) we provide a comprehensive two week anaesthesia course for our own medical students, to which we attach visiting students. Otherwise, we offer clinical attachments to the operating theatre, intensive care (1-week) and pain sessions (1-week).

We regularly accept students from around the globe, e.g. Australia, England, Germany, New Zealand, and Scotland.

Applications should be made via our medical school Faculty office at the Chinese University of Hong Kong. For more information, please visit
