I graduated from Nottingham medical school and completed my first year of foundation training in London. I have always had a passion for the outdoors and was keen to explore the more unconventional side of medical practice. Since leaving training I have worked as the medic on expeditions in Asia and central America and undertaken several wilderness medicine courses. In summer 2018 I will be moving to Panama to serve as a medic to remote communities and conduct community development projects.

OUR MISSION…

Is to inspire other medical professionals to apply their skills in remote environments in desperate need of medical assistance in addition to challenging themselves in places with limited resources. I believe that spending time in a place where modern investigative modalities are absent encourages medics to fine-tune their clinical skills. We believe individuals who are committed to being of service in their time off can make huge impacts to underserved communities and concurrently thoroughly enjoy the experience.
