Please note that due to the popularity of the programme, and to give as many students as possible a chance to attend, we will only accept one placement per Health Board.  If you have applied to all hospitals listed below and are successful for more than one placement, please only accept your preferred hospital.

For students wishing to study medicine, applications should be made as follows:
