Amazing and Unforgettable
The health care system itself is very different than what I was accustomed to, but it was a huge learning opportunity to experience a third-world health care system. I was fortunate enough to work with a great surgeon for my four weeks here as a Pre Dental. Yes, I learned applicable medical and surgical knowledge. Was that the highlight of my trip? No…The hospital experience in Mombasa was grounding, eye-opening, humbling and heart-felt. Not only do you see diagnoses that you won’t see in America, but you realize how much our future profession can be of service worldwide and how many people really need it. I think this experience is a great one, especially for anyone planning a future in the medical field.
