Undergraduate Medical Education

The Undergraduate Medical Education team at the Alder Hey Academy supports medical undergraduates in training and provides an integrated teaching programme in the speciality of Paediatrics.
The majority of medical students are from Liverpool University and Oxford University along with other visiting/elective trainees from other medical schools in the UK and overseas.

Our vision is to offer students the highest standards of medical education to meet the future needs of patients and ensure that they have skills and knowledge to provide exceptional care.
All Medical Student attachments must be organised via the Undergraduate Office to fulfil the necessary Employer/Employee Liability requirements and to ensure that students who attend Alder Hey for training achieve their full potential.
Our current Medical Student elective places are now all full until summer 2018 when our main elective block commences – Monday 2 July to Friday 10 August  2018 and then Monday 29 October 2018 onwards until Friday 31 May 2019. 

Please note these attachments are electives only and last a maximum of five weeks.
Please note Electives MUST NOT be part of your formal training in Paediatrics, and all students are usually required to have completed their formal paediatric training at their medical school.
