The Operation Wallacea Premed Course was set-up by Dr Dipak Mistry, an Emergency Medicine Specialist and Expedition Medic based in London, England and Dr Tim Coles OBE, founder of Operation Wallacea.

The aim of the Course was to help non-medical undergraduate students get some one to one contact with qualified medics and learn some basic principles of what real medics do whilst continuing their science degrees and research.

The Course first ran in 2011 in the beautiful Honduran Cloud Rainforest and is run yearly over the Summer as a mini 4 week add-on to one of Opwall’s Scientific Research packages.
