An Experience; Differenciated and Holistic
I was stationed at Levolosi Health Center…The clinical experience was something else, much different than the world of medicine I was used to before this. Elective Africa offered great accommodations that topped all of the other programs around the area... The excursions were also something that Elective Africa made easy. I climbed Kilimanjaro while I was here, and I went on the 3-day Safari.

A Life-changing and Enriching Experience
My experience in Mombasa, Kenya has been life changing and enriching. The people are the friendliest and I've made life long friends. Elective Africa is a true professional organisation with well established and respected contacts at Coast Provincial General Hospital. They take care of us so we can focus on the medical,cultural and social experience while living, playing and working in Kenya. I wish I could have stayed longer but I will bring back with me invaluable life lessons, skills and memories !

I Would Recommend it to other StudentsThroughout my four weeks spent at Coast Provincial General Hospital, Mombasa doing my elective with Elective Africa, I have had a productive and fulfilling time both academically and socially. The clinical rotations at the hospital were well negotiated as the program went on allowing a personalized program which catered to my learning goals. Being able to see how medicine is practiced in a setting different from my home country was a worthwhile experience. The opportunity to practice hands-on medicine under supervision and guidance was a highlight of the program for me. The accommodation was spacious, food was freshly cooked on a daily ...

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 ...

A Once in a Lifetime Journey
After spending 3.5 weeks with Elective Africa’s program, I am certain that medicine is the path for my future. Volunteering in the Health Centre as a pre-medical student allowed me many clinical opportunities that I would not be able to have in the States. The comparisons that I was able to make between medicine and healthcare versus the United States will serve me well in my future studies, practice, and medical experiences. Thank you so much, Elective Africa, for this once-in-a-lifetime journey! Asante sana!
