A big thank you to all at Medics Away who helped arrange my elective. I had a fantastic time in Tobago and really appreciated the opportunities that presented themselves as a result of being placed in such a teaching friendly environment.

Further to this, the accommodation and the people who looked after my well-being whilst abroad were first rate. The people of Tobago are inherently hospitable anyway but there was no job too small for our landlord. The best example I could give you is that on finding he had no cricket bat suitable for beach cricket, he promptly fashioned a perfectly adequate one using a machete and a nearby piece of wood!

The exemplary service that I have received over the last few months has lead me to recommend you to many of my colleagues, and I sincerely hope that BSMS develops a strong student base with your company. The fact that this service did not waver despite the tragic death of Dr. Molyneux only points to the professional and dedicated nature of your staff.

I wish you all a happy and prosperous new year, Paul.

I was just emailing to say thank you very much for the elective in India. It was thoroughly enjoyable from a medical and from a cultural point of view. Everything was also very well organised for me when I was out there which was great. Sorry it's taken me so long to get back but I've been pretty swamped with finals. Anyway if you have anything on your website where I can give feedback I would be happy to do so and say how enjoyable and well organised the whole thing was.
