I'm John, an 18 year-old Scotsman from the capital of Edinburgh and I am in New Delhi for 2 months doing a medical internship. I plan to be studying medicine in the future so this will be a fantastic opportunity to get a close up view of a hospital in India. I'll try to update my blog as much as I can to give a vaguely accurate view of the things I’ve been doing.

Our first day at the hospital was a fairly dramatic start.
After sorting out a few trainee badges for us, Neelofer Abbasi, our main
organizer at the hospital, took us up to ER and literally 30 seconds
after arriving there a woman was rushed in having a heart attack. It was
immediately obvious who the head of the department was as we saw Dr
Navneet walk swiftly over to the woman take a quick look at her and then
start barking commands to all the staff around him.

on the ground for two hours at which point I could tell that some of the
passengers were very willing to go out and to change the tire
