All students need a stethoscope estimated cost £100 – the Clinical School organises equipment sales and advises students not to buy one before that event as discounts are offered.
All clinical courses include a 7-week elective. Students may choose a local elective at no additional coast but the majority prefer to travel abroad; the cost to each student is typically £750. Numerous college and national grants are available.
From year 4 onwards, all students will complete an e-portfolio detailing their clinical experiences. Students are required to possess a tablet device that can be easily carried during clinical placements (a screen size of 7’ is recommended) running either the Android or iOS operating systems. Tablet devices vary in price, but should be available at a cost below £100.
While students are away on placement, the School will cover the cost of accommodation near the regional hospitals as well as the cost of one return journey. However, students may wish to budget money if they would like to return to Cambridge during the placement.
