Summer Research Electives


The Office of Distributed Education partners with our regional preceptors to offer a 6-week research elective. This opportunity is open to first and second year medical students looking to gain valuable research experience outside of the traditional academic health-centres located in London and Windsor. Once applications open, please click here to access the form.

Program Update: 

Our office is working closely with our community partners to monitor the impacts of COVID-19 and follow local health authority recommendations.  For the Summer Research Electives we have made the decision to maintain the dates to deliver this program. We also wish to communicate that this program may be cancelled pending further information from local health authorities.  Please check this page in the coming weeks for updates. Please contact if you require further information.
