I have had a productive and fulfilling time both academically and socially. Being able to see how medicine is practiced in a setting different from my home country was a worthwhile experience. Having contacts at Elective Africa was very helpful as it allowed quick help and advice to be at hand when needed. The program includes a whole range of social activities that participants may choose to do including a safari, scuba diving, visiting schools & orphanages and visiting archaeological sites. I would recommend it to students considering a placement abroad.
