Elective Competition 2017 Winner

After a fierce contest with some superb entries, we are very proud to announce the winner of our 2017 Adventure Medic Elective Competition: huge congratulations to Tom Bennett, from Peninsula College of Medicine and Dentistry!

Choosing our favourite essay was by no means easy, but Tom wrote a lovely piece about his elective in the Himalayan mountains of northern India with the Himalayan Health Exchange; we thoroughly enjoyed reading his reflective, thoughtful article which really hit our brief of ‘adventures great and small’ on the head. Watch this space for his article, which will be published in full shortly.

Tom has won himself an awesome Alpkit DryDock 50 Duffle Bag, a lovely Superflux Hoody from Rab, a great Travel Bundle courtesy of Lifesystems, and a wonderful buff from the folk at Keela.

Well done again Tom, and a huge thank you to all of our entrants – the standard was very high, and it was a genuinely close call.

Lastly, many thanks to our prize-giving sponsors Rab, Keela, Lifesystems and Alpkit. Please do go and check them out; they make pretty funky stuff that we all use.
