The medics guide to work and Electives Around the World
The Medic's Guide to Work and Electives Around the World has been put together by an experienced traveller and qualified doctor who is well placed to enlighten us on all the vagaries of a medical elective or work abroad. Mark Wilson has tried to put together a Lonely Planet of medical electives and to a large degree has succeeded.
This plump, yet cheap, book gives a sound grasp of what is needed in planning and organising an enjoyable elective. It tells you what you need to know in a basic layout rather than with colour pictures and glossy pages. It is easy to follow and has a simply written text. The section on destinations is the guts of the book with short accounts of countries in each region of the world. The countries covered are far from exhaustive, but there are few major omissions in the 80 listed.
