UK MEDICAL STUDENT RYAN HOGAN
Doctors for Nepal helped to set up an elective placement for UK medical student Ryan Hogan, who spent the month of May in the small hospital at Manma in Kalikot, where Kate Yarrow had worked with Médecins Sans Frontière.
Here are a few words from Ryan’s fascinating report on his placement:
“From day one I took an active role in the medical team, attending the morning ward round, seeing patients in the outpatient department with my translator alongside a doctor and seeing emergency patients as they arrived The two months spent in Nepal was an unforgettable experience. The clinical placements were incredibly rewarding, having the chance to work alongside local healthcare workers and observe their ways of managing patients in such a resource-poor environment. “
