Placement: Aga Khan Health Services, Tanzania
Dates: 2016– present
I will like to thank Africa Health Placement for the assistance in getting the placement at the Aga Khan Hospital, Tanzania. I joined the institution in February,2017 and have pretty much settled in. Although there have been little itches with integrating neurological services to the array of services provided by the hospital, we are overcoming these. The ongoing construction work aimed at expanding the hospital, is putting a little pressure on the available spaces but the silver lining is the fact that we will have enough spaces next year. Another challenge is the language; as Swahili is the language spoken by most people here. Thankfully, I have translators, should there be any patient who doesn’t speak the English language. Overall, I am having an interesting experience so far.
