Cape Coast to Accra

This morning, I woke up bright and early to complete my last shift at the teaching hospital. I only worked for half the day today since I had to leave to Accra in the early afternoon. Despite my short shift, I was able to learn a lot from Dr. Armah. We had some new cases today since Dr. Armah was doing rounds with a new firm team. After the rounds, Dr. Armah worked in the cardiology outpatient delivery so I was able to shadow him there. It was definitely nice to go to the outpatient unit since my interest lies there. Plus, I’ve also never seen any cases in cardiology. Because I had to leave early today, I was only able to witness one case. I definitely wish I could’ve seen some more cases but overall, I’m really happy with how this week turned out. I did not expect to learn so much at the inpatient wards. In the afternoon, Jacob (taxi driver mentioned in earlier blogs) took me and my friend to Accra so we could lodge at a family friend’s house. Tomorrow, we hope to explore a few more places in Accra before we both depart back to the U.S.

Here is a picture of me and Geegy (my coordinator and mother for a month). I want to personally thank her for accommodating and putting up with me for the past month. I will definitely miss her and I hope to see her again soon!

A selfie with me and Dr. Armah! I want to also give him a shoutout and thank him for teaching me so much this week. I certainly wish I could’ve spent another week with him to learn more. He has a very busy life and has mentioned to me that once he didn’t sleep for two days straight.
