Clinical electives for freemovers

Faculty of Medicine can offer a very limited number of short-term clinical electives at the hospitals within Region Skåne to freemovers (students currently enrolled at foreign universities without a student exchange agreement with the our faculty). Admitted students are placed at the hospital sites in Lund, Malmö, Helsingborg, Ystad and Kristianstad.

Due to student exchange agreements, priority is given to partner students.
