East African Work Experience for Harriet

Friday 20th September 2013

Harriet Foster, U6, has gained invaluable work experience during a week-long placement in Africa. Harriet travelled to Tanzania during the summer holidays to undertake work experience at Iringa Regional Hospital, assisted by the Kirkpatrick Travel Scholarship.

Harriet spent one week helping in the Paediatrics’ department followed by a week in the Out Patients department. In addition to shadowing the local doctors, she cleaned and dressed wounds, fitted casts as well as assisted in the birth of a baby. At the end of the hospital day, Harriet then spent the late afternoons volunteering in two local orphanages in Iringa.

Harriet said “The experience in the hospital was fantastic; being able to help in a hands-on role rather than just observe was amazing. The hospital was very busy and every patient was very grateful to receive treatment. The orphanage, although it was sad as the children have no parents, it was great to see how happy the children were. The trip has confirmed my desire to study for work in a medically related role.”

The trip was arranged through Gap Medics, a UK based organisation, dedicated to arranging hospital work experience placements abroad for students who are considering applying for medicine, nursing, dentistry or midwifery at University.
