Rwanda

During my time in Rwanda I will work with the International Organization for Women and Development. I will be part of the surgical team working with women with mainly obstetric fistula. Vaginal fistulas have a tremendous negative impact on quality of life and lead to social stigmatization. These women are ostracized and these surgeries allow them to re-enter their communities. My primary training goal is to gain the necessary skills to provide excellent patient care and perform complex vaginal surgeries in a resources-limited setting. This experience will help broaden my clinical and cultural horizons as it relates to women’s health and empowerment.
