Here’s our first tutor of the 2014 season: Dr Christopher Arrowsmith. Over to you Chris…
“Hi Guys, my name is Chris Arrowsmith. I’m an emergency doctor, trained on the lovely surfing beaches of the English south coast and now based in central London treating the sick and broken of the capital. Work is pretty varied here with occasional stab victims mixing up with the overdoses, broken bones and tropical infections!
My real passion however is exploring the great outdoors and I’ve previously been lucky enough to trek in the Himalayas, the Alps, the Atlas and the Andes as well as spending time in the jungles of Central America and South East Asia. I am qualified in expedition medicine and mountain rescue and have worked a variety of marathons, triathlons and adventure races here in the UK.
I’m pretty excited about heading out to Honduras and teaching all of you. Hopefully this will give you a flavour of what it’s like to be an EM specialist!”
