Clinical Placements Program

Each year the John James Foundation hosts a group of final year medical students from James Cook University, Qld, as part of the Specialist Elective (Clinical Placements) Program.

The 10-week program exposes students to a broad range of medical specialities and environments.  Students have an opportunity to spend one-on-one time with Specialists working in both public and private settings.  Students spend time in private rooms, scrubbing-in to theatre, clinics, ward rounds and are even able to get behind the scenes in medical laboratories.

Previous participants say the program provides valuable insights, particularly into the realities of private practice and a broad range of medical specialities outside the public system – often for the first time.

Students who will participate in 2018 have now been selected. Information about clinical placement opportunities in 2019 will be available soon.
