    Hi Dr Baez

    I am a final year medical student from New Zealand planning my medical elective for 2016, I am interested in any recommendations that you have for a “surfing” medical elective

      From Dr Baez,

      Hi Jay
      Hope you are well. As far as recommendations for electives I’m not sure I can help much as I have only been over to work once at Kandui Villas in the Mentawai and just recently signed up with the surfing doctors program, but I have actually never been there yet, will possibly be heading out there next year and I have heard good things on the G-land camp, so maybe that’s a good place to start. Good luck and congrats on almost finishing med school.
