As part of the MBBS curriculum at UTAS, 4th year students are required to undertake a 4-6 week elective (which can be undertaken anywhere in the world).

The University of Tasmania proudly has the School of Medicine Internationalisation and Electives Program (SMILE) which compiles a database of elective reports from returning students, both as part of the curriculum & extra-curricular placements.

TUMSS encourages returning students to submit their own elective report. For students that might need some inspiration for their own future elective, we also encourage you to visit the SMILE database for ideas.

Over the course of the year, we anticipate adding to this database, as well as liasing with external elective companies to help you plan the best elective ever!

Elective reports can be submitted at the UTAS School of Medicine electives domain.

The database can be accessed through the SMILE program.
