Desert Medicine Course BOOK NOW!

We have a few places left on our Desert Medicine Course in Namibia from 19-25  April.  This course was run for the first time last year and proved a fantastic success.  Run by Drs Sean Hudson and Sundeep Dhillon plus a knowledgeable local team this course is ideal for those interested in working in arid or desert environments.
