Dr Erik Madsen
Medical Student, USA
Hometown: Tampa, FL(The waves got good here once)
Background: I studied engineering in undergrad and did some work with Engineers without Borders in the Dominican Republic. I eventually switched to medicine and couldn’t be happier. I’ve got a strong interest in global health. I hove done some research in Peru and a mission to Haiti. I’m hoping to do a tour with MSF one day among other goals. I’ll be starting residency in emergency medicine Summer 2018. I can’t wait, but I definitely plan to do a lot of surfing in the meantime. I’m glad to have found a group of like-minded individuals.
Surfing: My homebreak is the east coast of FL + Puerto Rico. I surfed a bit on the OBX and SoCal. I’ve surfed all over Central America. Other places: Peru, Indo. My favorite place to surf is Oaxaca Mexico.
