Students benefit from regional awards for medical placements overseas

Two Oxford medical students have embarked upon ‘inspirational’ medical placements on the African continent and in Central America this summer, thanks to a new regional bursary scheme.

Local alumni group OUS Cornwall has offered grants for the past five years to help Cornish students to help fund summer projects associated with their studies.

However, this year the group extended the scheme to include an additional bursary to fund a medical elective abroad for medical students with strong connections to Cornwall.
