The best part of teaching in Casablanca were definitely the kids. I bonded and connected with them in a “siblings-level” rather than just a “teacher-student” level
I would have to say the journeys we took to reach seven different countries were the most unforgettable experiences of this Summer.
The Summer 2016 medical internship at Spitali Amerikan, Albania was an experience unlike any other. It peeled back the layers of the various specialities medicine has to offer. I engaged with cardiology and ENT physicians in their clinical visits. I was given the opportunity to sit in multiple surgeries, often being right next to the surgeon as he operated.
What is amazing about this experience is even though you travel to teach others, there is really no one who learns as much you yourself will learn. You learn about traveling, new foods, people, culture, and gain valuable life experience. You leave much of what you thought about yourself, your family and close friends and spent time gaining insight to refine who you truly are as a person.
It was ultimately the most rewarding experience to feel like you’ve made an impact in these children’s lives and I am thankful that I managed to connect with their young minds and teach them English while having fun
It was a very eye-catching experience because I got to witness several surgeries, procedures, as well as the operations in front of me at all times. Having to intern with Albanian doctors was fascinating, and interacting with their patients was even more satisfying.
