The Baptist Medical Center has a lot of volunteers and students pass through its doors. They stay for varying lengths of time, from one week to several months. Our first week in Nalerigu, Ghana was Oli Simpson’s last week. He is a British medical student from Guernsey who has been volunteering for 8 weeks to fulfill his degree’s requirement for an elective.
I sat down with Oli the day before he left and interviewed him about his time working here. He describes his stay here and some of the cases he saw. You can listen to the 10-minute audio interview below:
