    I'm currently a Physician Assistant student at Emory University in Atlanta, GA. I'm working on my clinical rotations now, and next summer, I'd like to go to Africa to work for 6-8 weeks in a hospital for an elective rotation.

    I would need an English-speaking doctor willing to take me in as a student, but I would arrange travel, lodging, etc.

    The more rural and underserved the facility the better--I'm looking for a challenge and an opportunity to make a difference as well as learn--but any options would be outstanding.

    Anyone have any suggestions, ideas, contacts? Any help would be tremendously appreciated.

    Man I have no idea, but wish you the best of luck. And be careful if you go, those lions are hungry.

    Did find a forum though ,(the student doctor network) with english speaking doctors in Africa. May find some there

    About your avatar, did you set a man on fire professionally, or by accident?

    Y'know, I'm even a member there, and didn't even think about checking it.

    Thanks a lot, there's some potential there!

    Far as the UT, PM'd :D

    Those ants (army ants?) are brutal. Beware the ants. And sausage flies.
