My Next Seoul-O Adventure

With the stakes being ever-raised in medicine, I thought it was about time that I started to integrate my travel with my studies. This lead to trawling through the Internet looking for cool conferences around the world (naturally). The Asian Medical Students’ Conference sprung up out of nowhere and looked like an awesome opportunity.


A week in Seoul, South Korea learning about “Accidents In Medicine” seemed like the perfect combination of education and exploration. So with that, I applied and didn’t really think much about it. But today I got the email saying that I had been accepted — woohoo!


So from the 23rd to the 29th of July (presuming my conference leave is accepted for uni) I will be heading to South Korea on the educational adventure of a lifetime. This will be my first medical student conference — what a what to start! At the moment it looks like I will just be checking out Seoul and perhaps Busan too, but I’ll do some more research and decide closer to the date.


Stay tuned for more details on the conference, my trip, and how you guys can get around it.


PLUS if you’re a medical student wanting to take part in this opportunity then never fear because second round applications are still open and can be found here.
