I stayed in one of Shirma's apartments for my medical elective at Scarborough General Hospital, along with 5 other students. I had an apartment to share with one other student, with a huge kitchen/living area (perfect for film nights and drinks), massive bed and en-suite bathroom, all air-conditioned and comfortable. We got free lifts to hospital every morning at 7.30, driven for food shopping every Monday and contact numbers for friendly and reasonable taxi drivers for other excursions. Shirma made us feel at home, and made us wonderful lunches every Sunday! Her home and garden is beautiful, with beaches a 10-15 min walk away. Staying with other students was so much fun and a great way to meet people and organise activities. The prices were reasonable and student-friendly. I couldn't have imagined a better way to spend my elective.

Just like everyone before me I stayed at Shirma's for the 6 week duration of my medical elective. I was greeted at the airport by Shirma who ensured I had enough food and such like to see me through until the weekly shop.
The accomodation is fantastic and all you could ever need. If you do need anything extra (e.g. kitchen utensils) then Shirma was always more than happy to oblige.
The nature of the accomodation and how hospital runs and group food shops are carried out really helps contribute to a great sense of camaraderie between the students.
Would highly recommend to anyone fancying an elective in Tobago - Shirma and her family do their utmost to make you feel at home.
