Q Hi Guys, thinking of trying to sort an elective out for june 2015. Would you say that 8 weeks would be too long? Our medical school only allows 2 x 4 or 1 8 week period in the same country, ( or 4 weeks uk, 4 weeks overseas)?

Q Hi, I've been trying to get in touch for a couple of months now but not having any luck. Tried Dr Ilo, Dr Bleodora and Asha Sine at the WHO but I'm not getting any replies. When I rang up, they gave me some emails for the main doctors in the hospital but Ive had no reply from them either, the admin team didn't seem to know who to refer to since Dr Ilo has left. Probably won't call again just due to cost. Any ideas on how best to get in touch and organise?
