"Almost" doctors for an expedition?

OtherJames Hipkiss

Hey there everyone!

A friend and I are looking to do an expedition for our end-of-finals elective. We would be wanting to go AFTER we've finished all of our placements (i.e. AE along with everything else) and final exams, and will be juniour doctors in all but name.

We're REALLY keen to do some expedition medicine, but we're struggling to find the best way to go about signing up for things. We don't have any courses to our name (like 'mountain medicine' or anything), but we both have pre-hospital care experience.

We would be looking to do something around about this time (late April 2014) next year. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
