An Invaluable Experience
My time at the Mbagathi District Hospital in Nairobi was a challenging but enriching experience. I split my time between the paediatric and newborn units and the hands-on experience I received was invaluable. The doctors were friendly and approachable and willing to explain anything you didn't understand and the resilience and resourcefulness of the staff, often in dire circumstances, was incredible to witness.The program is well organised and the program coordinator in Nairobi was excellent for answering any queries I had and checking that everything was running smoothly. I would highly recommend this program to any senior medical student who is looking for a safe, enjoyable and highly practical elective program with the benefit of immersing yourself in a new culture!
