We connect Medical Students from all walks of life – different countries, diverse backgrounds, varied cultural value systems – through elective placements in hospitals in Ghana. Elective Ghana ensures that your elective experience is educational and fun as we are committed to rendering a stress free, convenient and most importantly, very affordable service. Since we started in 2006, we have grown considerably as happy medical students return home raving about their experience with Elective Ghana and referring medical students to us.
