Hey all. In case you don't know me, my name is Sam. I am a first year medical student attending American University of Antigua College of Medicine. I am going to spending 2-3 weeks of my summer break working in a hospital in Peru. As a medical student we will be doing a lot more hand on work with the local physicians.
"Volunteer work may include taking vitals, attending rounds, charting patients, giving injections, providing general health checks, cleaning wounds, removing sutures, assisting in deliveries." ( https://www.abroaderview.org/programs/medical-dental/peru-medical-healthcare)
I will get to see how healthcare is different and the true needs of people that have so much less than most of us.
I've always had a passion for travel, and serving those that need help. I know we have a lot of people that need help here in the US, but going to these countries provides something else that is always hard to explain. It could be the culture, language or something else. I think for these people to see how willing we are to take our time and the money needed to travel to where they are says a lot to them. As cliche as it sounds, I am going down this path to truly help those in an area that needs a lot of attention. I love biology and medicine, and want to use these things I have a passion for to make a difference, even if is a small one. Whether or not you in particular may agree, we were put on this Earth by God for several things, to love those around us and to serve those you cannot help themselves.Thank you too all that help me on this mission of making myself a better medical student and future physician. It means the world to me and I cannot wait to see what happens.
