The Kenyan Experience
"Indiana University has a partnership with Moi University in Eldoret Kenya. This provides the urology residents and staff an opportunity to travel to Kenya in an exchange of talent and ideas. I had the privilege to go in February 2010. It was truly an eye-opening experience to see the way medicine is practiced in Africa and the discrepancy between resources. The work is hard, but rewarding, as we operated from the early morning until late at night. I'll never forget seeing four people in one hospital bed due to overcrowding. The end of the trip is a two-day safari in the Masai Mara. I highly recommend going on this experience of a lifetime."
