I recently met up with some amazing UK docs working in South Africa at the EMSSA conference. This conference was held in Sun City near Johannesburg and brought together emergency physicians from across the contient.
It was great to catch up some UK docs who were on postgraduate electives working in hospitals like Khayelitsha which you may remember from this amazing blog by Robert Lloyd.
So please listen, learn and get in touch if it's something that you want to do.
On the podcast we have
Simon Carley (@EMManchester), Jennifer Hulse (@coffeeheadaches), Chris Wearmouth (@CCWearmouth), Jacob Smith (@DrJacobSmith), Emma Gold (@EmmaRGold) and Chloe Sanderson.
There are also Marina Queisser & Eveline Baerends in the photo.

It's that time of year again, where we get new colleagues in the Emergency Department (and across lots of other areas of the hospital too).
These are some of the top tips for new starters (and life in the ED in general) gathered from the senior medical and nursing team at Virchester (South).
More induction guidance and education available at http://stemlynsblog.org/induction/
Oh. And one tip we left out - always wear sunscreen.
With thanks (and apologies) to Baz Luhrmann.
