Work experience placements

Work experience placements 

We are excited to be able to offer face-to-face work experience placements at Queen’s and King George hospitals, following the pandemic.

As we have not been able to offer work experience during the pandemic, we are aware there will be a huge demand for placements. Whilst we endeavour to meet the demand, we may not be able to accommodate every request.

While medical work experience has previously been managed separately and has been suspended for some time, it will now be managed together with all requests for clinical work experience. 

Elective placements

Please be advised this type of placement is for university students only. We are currently unable to accommodate any nursing elective placement requests for clinical areas. For any further queries please contact Mary O'Connell. 

Elective placements for medical students currently provide observership only. Those interested in applying should contact the Medical work experience team.
