Gondar has a positive attitude towards overseas students undertaking clinical electives. They wish to strengthen the links with universities aboard. The requirements that they need are simple.

You should have official letters from the Head/Dean of the School or Faculty of Medicine, containing the following information:

  • The name of the parent institution.
  • Which year of the study they are in.
  • Which type of course you have already undertaken (briefly).
  • For what type of clinical elective you envisaging.
  • Recommendation from the department head or the Dean.

You should also have an evaluation form so that Gondar staff can evaluate you at the end of the elective.

More importantly, you should cover all expenses related with travel, accommodation and health insurance. Gondar only exempts tuition fees.

It is useful to have some kind of project which is going to benefit all parties. If you want to attend for a clinical elective a recommendation by your Medical School is required.
