Medicine - Emergency Medicine

Residency

Keny

I will be taking part in the Tropical Medicine elective through the Johns Hopkins Department of Pediatrics. During our four week trip to Kenya, we will provide medical care to underserved populatoins within several regions of the country, including Nairobi, Samburu, and Mutomo. In many of the areas that we will be working, there are no local hospitals and the nearest doctor may be several hours away. My primary goal is to help provide medical care to poor children in Kenya that would otherwise not haev access to care. However, the experience will also advance my own career goals in a number of important ways. First, by taking part in a pediatrics elective, I will strengthen my skills and experience in caring for children. Second, this elective will provide first-hand exprienece with diagnosis and treatment of a variety of tropical illnesses not commonly seen in the US (e.g. malaria, TB, typhoid, kwarshiorkor, etc). Finally, I will develop global health experience and skills in providing medical care in low resource settings.
