I Shadowed in Pediatrics, Emergency, and Surgery,
The 2-months I have spent in Kenya have been very impactful for me. I learned about how healthcare works in African countries, which I was inquisitive about when choosing this program.
I shadowed in pediatrics, emergency, and surgery, which is where I ended up spending the last half of my program. As an aspiring surgeon, this was a quality experience for me and I got to see a lot of that. I may not have been able to see it in the US.
Many of the doctors chosen for the program go out of their way to enhance your learning, Beyond the hospital, I had many memorable experiences and made many contacts and friendships that I hope will be sustained in the future, I highly recommend this program and I can't wait to come back to Kenya!
