Elective student placements across AHP groups

Elective clinical placement experience may be available across the AHP groups for pre-registration students. 

If you would like to know more about elective placements please contact the AHP education lead in the particular department you are interested in. The education lead may then ask for your student application and supporting information documents to be completed and returned. Please see the details below for the appropriate contact numbers.

Students applying for an elective placement who are outside the Wessex area will be required to complete an honorary contract unless UHS has a valid practice agreement with your university.
