Medical electives

ME booklet*Due to overwhelming demand, our medical elective programme is full for 2014-2015, so we are not accepting further applications until further notice. If you wish to express an interest in case anything changes or for future years, please contact us.*

Medical elective students are invited to join Blue Ventures' award-winning community health team at our base in the village of Andavadoaka, Madagascar, for 4-6 week placements.

  • Take part in and learn about our community-based approach to health education and service delivery
  • Witness the challenges of providing healthcare in a remote, resource-poor setting
  • Learn about the cultural, social, environmental and economic context within which we operate

  • This is a unique opportunity to live and work with some of the world’s poorest and most isolated communities, and be part of our integrated health and conservation programmes. We are confident that no other medical elective can offer you this sort of learning experience!
