The RGS Expedition Medicine Book

is a bible for anyone seriously considering being a medic for an expedition. It covers virtually all scenarios, from arctic to mountain, diving to dessert expeditions...a great book

The Oxford Handbook of Accident and Emergency Medicine

This is a great little book that will get you out of virtually all problems. It obviously caters for a more Western population, but in conjunction with the Oxford Handbooks of Medicine, Clinical Specialities and possibly tropical diseases, you should have your bases covered


Where there is no doctor

Over 3 million copies in 50 languages have been sold - a must for any medical missionaries. It covers all common diseases that are uncommon in the West. A simple but essential book - also think about getting "Where there is no Dentist"


Worldwide Volunteering

This book is a fantastic directory of over 950 organisations that provide over 300,000 placements a year in over 200 countries. A great place to start for a Gap year or if not yet qualified
