Unfortunately, the Division of Respirology is unable to provide a formal 2 week elective/selective for 1st and 2nd year medical students (eg pre-clerkship).
For those medical students who are interested in experiencing respirology at this early stage, the only option is to contact individual preceptors for permission in ‘shadowing’ them in their outpatient clinics. This might entail joining a preceptor for 2 or 3 half-day clinics, but the exact details would be up to that preceptor and the student. Inpatient respirology would not normally be available due to the number of existing trainees on the service at each site.
