My experience in Kenya was incredible. In terms of interning at CPGH, I was exposed to so many cases and learning opportunities, it was truly a once in a lifetime experience. The doctors and nurses were for the most part very helpful and instructive. The tours and treks I was a part of, shaped my stay in Kenya in so many ways. I was taught so much on the culture, food, traditions, current setbacks, etc. The knowledge enriched my outlook on the country I was staying in for over a month. Being able to go on the safari and experience the Lion King in real life was indescribable. The food, attentiveness, and care that I received while staying in the residency was truly was made the trip feel like home. Every person I interacted with made sure I was happy, fed, and had clean scrubs every day. I was able to help cook a few meals for the interns and I, Joshua was incredible. I am still in awe that I was a part of such an amazing program.
My safari experience was truly phenomenal. Our tour guide Enok was the smartest and most well rounded person. He is the reason why I was able to see the Big Five on my weekend, which is not common. The hotels I stayed in were amazing, it truly felt like I was on vacation instead of an internship. I loved that the hotels had buffet like food services, it accommodated perfectly to my no meat diet.
