Trainee intern electives for medical students from overseas


Medical students spend their sixth and final year of the MB ChB as trainee interns (TIs) within a teaching hospital. Our three clinical schools, three clinical schools: Dunedin School of Medicine; University of Otago, Christchurch; and University of Otago, Wellington, organise placements for final year students.

A limited number of clinical elective positions are also available for final-year medical students from recognised medical schools outside of New Zealand.
