We connect Medical Students from all walks of life – from different countries, diverse backgrounds, varied cultural value systems – through elective placements to hospitals in Ghana. Elective Ghana ensures that your elective experience is educational and fun as we are committed to rendering a stress free, convenient and, most importantly, very affordable service. Since we started in 2007, we have grown considerably as happy medical students return home raving about their experience with Elective Ghana and referring medical students to us. Now we partner with most universities (and still growing) in Europe, the Americas, Asia and the Far East forming our own World Wide Web of young, exuberant doctors who are committed to serve.
