Medical students from all over the world are welcome here at Mseleni. The ability to speak English is helpful, even if it's only what you've learnt at school. You don't have to be a Zulu speaker, but you might like to learn the basic greeting.

"Mseleni is a fantastic place to do an elective. There are many opportunities for learning and obtaining experience carrying out practical procedures such as inserting chest drains, performing lumbar punctures and assisting in theatre. Despite the many opportunities, there is no pressure to do anything you don't feel comfortable with, you can do as much or as little as you like. Although there's little to do locally in the evenings, the other doctors are all on-site and are all very friendly and Sodwana beach is only half an hour's drive away. I would highly recommend it - I loved it and am keen to go back!"

"I want just mention one of many highlights in between an amazing time during my medical elective here in Mseleni: The doctors visit eight different clinics in the villages around, some of the are best to reach by plane. I've been to two of them on a very nice Mseleni winters day (which is about the same as a German summers day) flying over a gorgeous landscape and the coast to the Indian Ocean - difficult to find the right words for a description. And that is only one reason why I think you should come, do your medical elective in Mseleni and see it yourself!"
Anne from Germany
