Medic shadowing for student elective

OtherJames HipkissComment

I am a medical student at the University of Leicester on the graduate entry medical degree, having previously worked as a nurse for two years, part of which I worked in AE.

I am in the process of organising my medical elective placement - a 4-6 week trip we organise ourselves in April 2014, after having completed our medical finals. I am very interested in expedition/wilderness medicine and am trying to arrange my elective to encompass both medicine and the outdoors, as well as attempting to organise an elective that is a bit different from the norm.

If anyone could give some pointers/contacts in order to organise my elective along these lines, it'd be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

Richard
