The Larnaca General Hospital is a relatively small hospital, servicing a population of 100,000. The hospital is built on land that is owned by the St. George committee, but which was gifted to the Cypriot Ministry of Health for the hospital; it was opened in 1984. The hospital build was funded by Amerian donations and the ground breaking ceremony was hosted by the former president of Cyprus, Mr. Spyros Kyprianou.
The hospital has a variety of wards and specialities and students will be able to rotate through these wards during their electives. Students have commented that there is good exposure to a number of medical specialties and the co-operative and helpful nature of the staff enables a high standard of learning that will help to increase your clinical standards. The hospital has four operating theatres, three for everyday use and one for emergency use (all are attended by Anesthesiologists), and it also has a HIV ward.
It should be noted that the population of Cyprus doubles in the summer with tourists, so students taking electives during the summer may be busier. Additionally, previous students have done extended elective placements at this hospital, but this will need to be arranged through your medical school and the hospital.
