Medical elective travel insurance

Travelling overseas for your medical elective can be one of the most exciting and rewarding aspects of your career.

Before your adventure begins though, it’s important to make sure you’ve got the right cover in place to protect yourself when working abroad. You’re spending time improving other people’s health, so it’s important to look after your own health too.

Elective travel cover for BMA members

Our elective travel insurance policy is provided by well-known and award winning insurer, AXA Insurance plc.

Key policy benefits

  • Cancellation cover: exam re-sits 
  • Portable medical equipment
