Electives in Family Medicine provides students with the opportunity to study an area of interest in greater depth and fill in personal knowledge gaps through a self-directed program in London or one of our surrounding rural regional communities.

Electives are open to Western medical students as well as Visiting students from Canada and International schools. Preference is given to Western students from September to December.

Available electives can be reviewed on our Community Sites page.

For Schulich students, please see the Schulich Students page on how to request or report an elective and what expense reimbursements you are entitled to.

For Visiting students, please see the Visiting Students page on how to submit an application for an elective in our Department. Please note, applications have to be received to our school at least four months in advance of the elective and are subject to the procedures and polices of our Schulich Visiting Student Electives Program.
