Bursaries for Elective Medical Placements in Africa

12 December 2017

The Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh is offering a number of bursaries to Undergraduate Affiliates of the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh, enrolled at UK universities, who have planned to carry out their elective placements in Africa.

The elective need not necessarily be in a surgical specific unit but priority may be given to students demonstrating an interest in surgery. The bursary will comprise a single payment which can be used towards travel and accommodation costs or other expenses involved with the placement such as vaccinations and visas.

For further information, please contact Mrs Cathy McCartney, Awards and Grants Administrator, Secretariat, Tel: 0131 527 1618 email: For more information on this and other RCSEd bursaries and grants click here.
