We are extremely proud of our current BDS student, Eilidh Murray, who was awarded the prestigious Laurence Usiskin Elective Scholarship, and was therefore able to undertake her orthodontic elective scholarship in Kathmandu.
Eilidh said, "Travelling to Kathmandu as part of my elective project provided a unique chance to explore a country and culture vastly different from my own. Power cuts, water shortages and pollution made for challenging conditions, however the welcoming nature and humbling gratitude of the Nepali people made for a trip to remember.
"The opportunity to complete my elective abroad strengthened my communication skills as well as quickening my decision making and ability to treatment plan. I would urge all those considering a similar trip to go for it, I have no regrets!"
