An Experience That I Will Always want To Have Again! 

Emmanuel Jnr Amoateng Shares His Experiences As A Pre Med Intern in Kenya

I have had the opportunity to be part of a community based research internationally specifically in Kenya, 2018 through elective Africa. My experience over there has really shaped and harness my character, knowledge and wisdom. Over the years, people tell me USA has the best education or things in the world in terms of everything. This cliche stacked with me that i never saw myself partake in any research/ internship whatsoever however, my internship/ research and stay in Kenya refuted my biased idea that other countries do not have anything compared to the USA. During my few stay in Kenya, I got a practical sense of researching and even had the opportunity to shadow physicians in the OR. It was unfortunate that my stay in Kenya was brief but it was worth it because now I have another family in Kenya who will always have their doors open for me whenever I want to go back.

A Life Altering Experience!

Ainslee Rubino Recalls Her PA Experience While In Kenya

My time in Africa was a life-altering experience that I'm grateful to have had. From the moment that I got off the plane until the day I left, the people we're always welcoming, kind and willing to help. I made friendships and built relationships to last a lifetime. It was incredible getting to work at the second largest hospital in Kenya as well as experience the local culture through activities such as camel riding, feeding giraffes, jet skiing on the Indian Ocean and eating at local restaurants! I was so grateful and thankful to work with the amazing staff at the hospital who really took me under their wing and allowed to rotate in various departments. You will get to experience a wide variety of medical conditions and attain hands-on experience unlike anything else. I had so many wonderful experiences that is hard for me to summarize. I look forward to the day that I can give back. <3
