"This experience taught me more in 2 weeks than many would learn in a lifetime. Not only is it educational, both academically and culturally, but being able to spend time travelling with like minded people, who will quickly become like family, is so refreshing. So often we only see a slim view of what the world is like, but this trip opened my eyes up to so many other realities."

"Thanks to the Crimson team for the immense effort in organising the itinerary for this trip. The Youth Medical & Health Sciences Tour was undoubtedly a riveting experience that provided a wholesome perspective upon the study and practice of medicine in an international country. I’ve accumulated a wealth of knowledge through visiting some of the top American universities and particularly enjoyed meeting a group of like-minded and intelligent individuals. It was an experience worth every penny that has resulted in my confidence in pursuing Medicine in the future."
