Why this medical elective is right for you

We are unique in the way we work. We are a registered charity and therefore nonprofit, and invest 100% of our fees back into the communities we support. There are many companies operating in the nurse elective area, but we are the only one that is affordable and have been awarded as an ethical provider! 

We cater for all nursing areas including; adult nursing, child nursing, mental health, midwifery, and disability. 

We will support you from start to finish, and with everything in between. We got you!

Clinical Experience 

Key tasks and observations 

Medical Elective Placements Abroad 3

We saw Vocational Impact speak at our university (Leeds) and could tell they offered a really tailored and personal experience. We wanted to go with a not-for-profit organisation that supported us every step of the way. We really couldn’t recommend Vocational Impact enough.

The VIP Experience

We will tailor the placement focus around your interests, whether you’re interested in conducting research for your education or degree, or joining an active team working on the front line in a different cultural environment. We will guide you through each step and make you feel like a VIP through the whole journey. 

*It is important to note that the facilities and resources on this project are extremely limited and provide a different working environment to what most medical students have experienced before.
