TestimonialTanzania has been life - changing for me.The people here are so incredibly warm and welcoming.Since day one, I have been ushered in with open arms.The nurses and doctors of the labor and delivery ward have taken me under their wings and made sure was exposed to everything and given ample opportunity to practice procedures and learn the medicine behind labor and delivery. The medicine gave me independence to work on my own when they trusted the work I was doing.Apprenticeships like this does not exist.Leaving here is so incredibly sad because every thing about the Tanzanian ...

Beyond my Imagination
My experience with Elective Africa was beyond what I could ever have imagined. My nerves before arrival subsided the minute I was greeted at the airport by an EA staff. I had so much hands on experience in the rural hospital of Migori,Kenya and got an opportunity to to do things I would never have the chance to do in Australia. This is by far one of the best things I have done fro my Nursing career and would recommend this to any health professional willing to take the next step. I was always made to feel safe at ...

Migori Premedical Elective
I could not have anticipated the amount of love and acceptance we received from the hospital staff, in addition to the exceptional assistance of the EA staff. If you're like I was and you're not 100% sure about attending medical school, this experience will be great for you…This program allows you to observe things you would never see as a premed in North America. In addition to the hospital work, we had the opportunity to visit a girls secondary school and an orphanage, both of which were amazing experiences; and that is just a glimpse of what we did in ...

A Gratifying Experience
I completed the past four weeks at Mt Meru Regional Hospital as my final elective in community medicine. I came into the program with an open mind and the willingness to learn and the program itself exceeded my expectations. I was able to get what I wanted to from the experience at the hospital as well and went through various wards. I know I would have never gotten this experience at home and can go home knowing that this will carry on with me through my career as well.

Enchanted with Mombasa
The whole experience here was so fun exciting, new and completely captured my heart. Mombasa is an amazing City with wonderful people. If I could I would have extended my program longer. I thought 4weeks would be long but it went by too fast. This program is amazing and this experience has taught me so much from the Medical field but in life and culture. A piece of my heart will be left here in Kenya and I have to come back again.

My Tanzania ExperienceMy title, the lyrics of a popular Tanzanian song I heard many times during my 4 weeks at Arusha, in Mt. Meru Regional Hospital says it all. Tanzania is a completely different world than the United States, Europe, or any other place I've been and working in such an environment stretches you as mentally as a student/future healthcare provider and emotionally as a human being. The interns in surgery took me in, pushed me to learn, and encouraged me to participate in procedures in the ward and the operating theatre. You see things and get to do ...
