The medical and dental study tour is led by Natalie Richard and Dr Tim Sunnucks, an emergency medicine and endodontist respectively. Iceland is a magical island. Its dramatic beauty comes from a vast volcanic landscape where mighty forces shape the earth: geysers and mudflats, active volcanoes swathed in ice and glaciers grinding their way through mountains.
Its rich cultural life encompasses a literary legacy that stretches from medieval sagas to contemporary thrillers by way of Nobel Prize winners, as well as live music and Nordic style. The local people are welcoming and creative and have a progressive, egalitarian sensibility. The health care is innovative and the professional visits encompass the country’s largest teaching hospital, an isolated village clinic, a medical spa, and children’s hospital and a rehabilitation centre alongside meetings and talks.
Dr Nathalie Richard is a consultant in emergency medicine with several years experience. Nathalie is also a member of the Royal College of General Practitioners, has worked in a multidisciplinary dental and medical centre in Harley Street and regularly teaches emergency medicine to dentists.
Tim Sunnucks is on the specialist register in endodontics and lectures and runs courses on endodontics and restorative dentistry. Tim is a member of various organisations including The British Society for Restorative Dentistry, The British Endodontist Society and the International College of Dentists.
