The Final Stages

We are two weeks out from the trip to the West Bank and my excitement is growing exponentially. We have to register with the medical school one month in advance for any rotation. As it stands now, we are four medical students very eager to make the trip. We all come from various backgrounds and have our own reasons for choosing this global elective rather than the other electives offered at the Carver College of Medicine. I think the group dynamic will work really well despite the fact that we will likely be together for the vast majority of the trip. Our flights to and from Amman, Jordan are identical so hopefully we will all be sitting next to each other.

I have spoken to the United Nations Health Director for the West Bank, Dr. Ummiyeh Khammash, and had a conference with our physician collaborator, Dr. Taroub Faramand, in which we were able to finalize details of our trip. Dr. Khammash has permitted us to work with physicians, nurses, and staff and a multitude of camps as well as work on a community Service Project for several camps. My meetings with Dr. Taroub went very well and we outlined the schedule for every single day we will be over seas. Things are coming together really well and am excited to share this information with my colleagues.
