    Hey there!
    My name is Paddy, I’m a final year medical student at the University of Queensland. I am currently trying to plan a four week stint of my final year elective in Northern South America / Central America. I am a keen surfer and I am pretty keen to tie the two in together. I am trying to find contacts of clinicians / hospitals / clinics in the region to organise an elective. Peru, Ecuador, Nicaragua are on top of my list, but I’m really flexible. I love travelling and I have a great passion for medicine in the third world.
    Any assistance at all would be greatly appreciated,
    Kind regards,
