Dear Wei Juan

Unfortunately, I will be unable to place you all in the same department as most departments only accommodate 1 student at a time.

I have allocated the following specialities to each of the following students:

Wei Juan Lim: Colorectal Surgery, Western General Hospital
Lee Cil Eilk: Transplant Surgery, the Royal Infirmary

Availability in other departments at that time is as follows:

Anaesthetics, The Royal Infirmary
Diabetes & Endocrinology, The Royal Infirmary
Gastroenterogy, The Royal Infirmary
Medicine for the Elderly, Royal Victoria Hospital
Haematoogy, Western General Hospital
Intensive Care Unit, The Royal Infirmary
Oncology, Western General Hospital
Pathollogy, The Royal Infirmary
Medical Radiology, The Royal Infirmary (2 places)
Medical Radiology, Western General Hospital
Rehabilitation Studies, Astley Ainslie Hosital
Renal Medicine, The Royal Infirmary

Please let me know if any of the above will be suitable.

Best wishes
