General Information regarding the COVID-19 crisis and our international medical elective program

The virus has been rapidly spreading from mainland China to all countries worldwide since its emergence in early 2020. Measures against COVID-19 are in place almost everywhere.

Our students can obtain current Corona Virus updates and further information from the WHO. The WHO is currently publishing frequent updates on the situation globally. The WHO publishes overviews of the case numbers worldwide here.

Shanghai is at times subject to strict COVID-19 measures. As the Zero-COVID strategy of the PRC continues, there are strict travel limitations in place and travel to mainland China from abroad is at current severely restricted. Since the COVID-19 spread can be quickly changing, further travel limitations or temporary lockdowns may come into place on extremely short notice.

We advise all students to strictly observe hygiene standards (including using alcoholic hand desinfectant), to wear FFP masks in public. We strongly advise all accepted students for scheduled for elective in 2022 to monitor the progress. Likewise, please register at their countries crisis-prevention-list prior to travel. Students scheduled to begin their rotation before 2023 must reschedule their rotations to a later period if possible. At current we exspect the international elective program at the Shanghai East Hospital to resume full service starting 2023.

At current, travel is not possible due to restricted Visa issuance and there is a strict quarantine for 21 days after arrival in place. Please make sure to contact us prior to travel in either way.

Of course, we will keep you updated on current events. If you are an enrolled student and you should encounter any problems, please contact us and we will assist you in any possible way.

We offer all of our applied students with planned electives to postpone on a flexible basis, or – if wanted – reschedule your elective with our partners in Brasil at FMB. Please contact us to postpone your rotation at any time!

Application for any period starting from Spring 2023 onwards remain open.
