This trip was absolutely far beyond what I would have imagined. My experience was very hands on and I learned everything from cast molding to sutures. The staff in the hospital was very helpful. Volunteering at the hospital gave me a whole bunch of trauma related surprises on a daily basis. At the clinic I was treating infected wounds, diabetic ulcers, taking out sutures, ear irrigations, and abscess draining. Seeing such a wide variety of patients was definitely mind blowing. At the hospital, the Emergency department was definitely busy and I had the opportunity to learn how to suture, treat and manage gunshot wounds, fractures, and triage. I was fortunate enough to visit labor and delivery for a small rotation and was allowed to participate in a delivery. Also, I found a lot of the interns to be around my age and got along with them very well. I even found myself hanging out with them outside of the hospital. A lot of the interns spoke English as well which I saw to be helpful to the other volunteers who did not speak Spanish. There was one weekend where we were a part of a medical brigade in Sambo Creek. This was another great experience where we were providing care to people who could not make it out to the city. Here I assisted dentists in tooth extractions, and again found everyone to be very open to teaching in informative.- Joan - April 7, 2015
