Out-of-Province Medical Students
Out-of-province undergraduate medical students in their clerkship year(s) of training interested in a medical elective with Alberta physician preceptors must first contact the electives office at the University of Calgary or the University of Alberta to complete the required undergraduate elective application forms.
The University elective office will ensure communication with the student’s home university, will ensure that the student has medical malpractice insurance and will arrange for the student’s registration with the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Alberta.
Canadian students may apply for electives anytime during their clerkship years. The decision to accept international students rests with the universities.
For more information as to procedures at the University of Alberta or University of Calgary, please contact the corresponding electives office.
