Elective with Medact



A partnership between Students for Global Health and Medact

This programme will provide an opportunity for you to develop skills in research and campaigning, as well as gain insight into the role of civil society in health policy.

The work undertaken will depend on Medact’s current priorities and your skills, experience and interests. We want this placement to help you develop skills in research and campaigning, contribute to Medact’s work and benefit Students for Global Health more broadly by bringing those skills into our network.

Past elective programmes have involved compiling research on the public health impacts of charging for healthcare. The research will be used in Medact’s campaign against the regulations that have introduced upfront charging into the NHS.

If you are passionate about global health, research or campaigning, and feel your placement with Medact could not only benefit you but the wider Medact and Students for Global Health network, please get in touch and apply!

We are restarting this scheme for placements from Spring 2021 onwards. The Medact team are currently working from home and placements would be on a remote basis until further notice
