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.
Welcome to the TUMSS elective database. This a collection of past and present students’ electives, created with the aim of helping future students finding an elective perfect for them.
