One of the many exciting aspects of this career I have chosen is the universal desireability of my skills in volunteer projects. Even now, I'm setting up my fourth year, and it turns out that as a medical student, I can get academic credit for going to Mongolia, or Peru, or Nepal or any of a dozen other exotic locations. Not only that, but in travelling there I will not be a tourist solely, but will also get the opportunity to contribute in a meaningful way to the lives of the people there. So, I've spent the last hour or so sending emails, and we'll see where I end up heading if this pans out.
