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

I would have to say, most memorable patient was 80+ old women who some of us visited on a home visit. She had broken her femor and was unable to move from her small bed. When asked how she was feeling by Dr. Jimenez, her response was simply "I'm ok". To see someone in that much pain, unable to move, and still have such faith, strength and happiness was a life changing experience for me.- Paola Reveco, 2nd year medical student, Touro College of Osteopathic Medicine
