The Convivial Encounter with Elective Africa

Living in Mombasa with the other students was such a great place to be outside of the Hospital it gave you a base to explore shops and cafe. The social side of my elective was the other part that was important to me and I have enjoyed meeting and spending time with the other participants so much. I really like that it is an international mix. I have also enjoyed all the time I have spent with the staff around Mombasa. I think working in a hospital in Africa can feel like throwing yourself in the deep end but it was a plunge I'm glad I took and I hope I'll be a better doctor for it.
