If you can’t find this slick, senior medical student in the trauma bay, then head out to surf the nearest break. He’ll be there shredding it up. Or… limping home from his 4th bike crash this year.

      Hey Simon,
      I am one of the ERP in Victoria and have the pleasure of working with many of the Crackcast team. I happen to have a friend who is planning to challenge the CCFP(EM) exam next year and is looking for advice/tips/whatever to help him through the process. If you would be so kind, would you email me at [email protected] so I might connect you with my friend?
      Thanks, Jeff
