Overview

"Medicine, as doctor, nurse, physio or student, is your passport to the world", and Mark Wilson is determined to ensure that you will make the most of it!

A motivational and practical guide to making the most of your time abroad; whether as a student taking a medical elective, or a medical professional looking for a longer-term change in scene. The Medic's Guide to Work and Electives Around the World provides all the information you will need to decide where in the world to go, with thought-provoking career suggestions including emergency ski patrol, forensic investigation in New York, taking part in research for NASA, or working for a charity or missionary organization.

Practical advice is provided about all aspects of getting ready; including securing your position and funding, vaccinations, travel insurance, your pension while abroad, and health and safety issues. A 'what to take' list will ensure that even the most hapless traveller arrives prepared for any eventuality; but as a fallback there is always a list of embassies to contact in emergencies!

New for this edition is a helpful list of recruitment agencies, focussing on agencies in Australia, New Zealand and the UK.

Absolutely essential reading for any health professional or medical student planning to work abroad.
