Q Hi all, I am heading to Vila Central Hospital in January for a 6 week elective. I am wondering if anyone has tips, e.g. regarding things to bring - in particular, do we have to wear scrubs at the hospital or are other clothes acceptable? Also what did you do for a phone SIM card? I've also had some issues trying to get in contact with Prisca (elective coordinator) for an urgent final approval for my uni, but from reading the other posts it sounds like this is a common problem and I just need to keep trying!

Q I am also having difficulty contacting the hospital via both emails and phone call. If anyone has some tips regarding contacting the hospital it would be much appreciated! I.e. how long each email took for responses/ when to call is best?
