Thank you letter from a tripper

PDFPrintE-mail

Thank you doctoras for letting me work with you and learn some of the nuances of being a doctor. By letting me into your world, I was able to experience the culture and the people of Nicaragua. The joy I experienced from being able to meet, interact with, and help patients reinforced my desire to become a doctor and can be attributed to your guidance and kindness for the past two weeks. The ability to have hands on experience with patients has really given me an advantage and a knowledge that I can use in the future. I hope to go back to Nicaragua and to see all of you again. And thank you again for a wonderful experience.

 Sincerely,

Sean Treasure

My favorite patient memory was a home visit we took in Granada. The woman was very old, almost blind, and lived on her own. She welcomed us into her home and was very giving about information regarding her personal and family life. This opportunity allowed me to see first hand the kind of health care that is available to these people and made me fully appreciate everything GMT does and stands for. Here the doctor taught us about not only the health of the patient, but also about the way of life of many Nicaraguan individuals. It was truly incredible.- Heather Berman, Junior, University of Florida
