Clinical Attachments and Electives

Overseas doctors applying for jobs, or preparing for the PLAB examination may find it useful to undertake a clinical attachment. This is a non-paid, non contact observership.

Doctors do not need to be registered with the GMC to undergo a clinical attachment as they will not be carrying out any procedures. Usually, clinical attachments last for 4 - 6 weeks, during which time the doctor will be attached to a consultant and observe their work. Clinical attachments provide invaluable experience of the NHS, and can help overseas doctors gain a reference for future job applications.

To be considered for a Clinical Attachment you must write directly to the consultant of your choice requesting an attachment and enclosing a C.V.

Medical Student Electives

A limited number of elective placements may be made to various specialties within the hospital. However, the Trust is already busy with a large number of students from Warwick Medical School. We have therefore drawn up the following guidance which should prove useful for students looking for elective placements.
