Join Couchsurfing to see Tom’s full profile. It’s free!
Living in Washington DC for 7 weeks researching pediatric epilepsy, planning on spending every weekend exploring East coast.
My names Tom - Im a 30 yr old British medical student, Im currently staying and travelling around the east coast of the States. During the week I plan on staying in DC and working at the National Childrens Medical Center undertaking clinical and research work. During the weekends I plan on travelling all around the east coast area.
I have been fortunate to mix work with travel - during breaks from studies I have led and particpated in expeditions to Pakistan, Botswana, Zambia, Venezuela, Brazil to name a few... I have also spent 5 months working as a jungle guide in the rainforests of Borneo, Malaysia.
I hope my medicine takes me all over the world - and Im a huge fan of getting to know people as much as I can. I have only recently come across the couch surf experiment so this is my first time travelling and giving it a go!
Sorry no photos as yet - although will endeavour to get some up soon!
