Who are you? 

Wojciech Cymes (

Where did you go? 

MonzeMission Hospital in Zambia

How did you organise it? 

Through contact on the electives network, but if you arrange it through one of the doctors you don’t have to pay the admin fee (contact me for details)

Why you would recommend it? 

  • General medicine as well as specialties experience.
  • Good amount of supervision.
  • Lots of paediatric cases in medicine, surgery and once a month orthopaedics.
  • You can deliver children.

Why you would not recommend it?

You don’t get left alone (e.g. you can do pre-rounds and there will be a doc to review it) which might not be what some people want.
