The Colonial War Memorial Hospital Suva, Fiji

Hospital description

The Colonial War Memorial Hospital in Suva serves as the Fiji’s major teaching and referral Hospital. It is well-equipped and is the largest and most advanced hospital in Fiji. Excellent learning opportunities as the hospital has good facilities and a wide range of pathologies. Previous students have commented that the hospital is more suited to a clinical elective than a research elective as staff are very busy and do not have much time to assist students carrying out research. However, there is opportunity to get involved with the National Medical students and to time to experience the country, which is very beautiful.

The hospital also has a hyperbaric medical facility so it is well-equipped for a variety of electives.

Q Hi, I've emailed Ms Batimoko over 2 months ago now and still no reply. I was wondering if you know if contact via phone is more successful than email?

Q From past reviews on this website and elsewhere, it seems that there is a lot of opportunity to do hands on procedures in Fiji. However, the School of Medicine website specifically states that elective students are unlikely to get any hands on experience as the Fijian students get priority. Has this recently changed, or do elective students still get practice despite the scary disclaimer?

Q Hi my friend and I have just decided that we want to do an elective in Fiji in the summer of 2014; but we have missed the deadline for application!! It was 31st of March, as we did not realise that we had missed this. It says on the application form that late applications will not be accepted but it seems from the reviews that not everyone organised 18 months ahead. Has anyone applied after the deadline in the past and still managed to get a place?
