Please see below the dates for the 2018 placement blocks – the list will be updated with the available specialities early in the New Year.
The University of Cambridge School of Clinical Medicine is able to arrange a number of elective placements each year. These placements are split into eight, six week blocks throughout the year.
Each block offers different specialities and these are published under the relevant date located on the navigation bar to the left. Students are asked to make a note of up to 5 placement numbers for the blocks/specialities of interest as this information will be requested in the application form during Stage 1 of the application process. The Clinical School is limited to a certain number of students per block and so it is not possible to allocate a student to every speciality.
The Clinical School will make every reasonable effort to allocate students to the specialities and blocks that have been requested however it is not possible to guarantee the offer of a placement in a preferred block or speciality.
