This elective was organised online through an organism in Ghana called the Royal Health Triangle. I labelled it "family medicine" but it was truly general medicine in a rural hospital. I was taught by the staff of the hospital and was able to assist in their various duties.

Description of Student Experience: 

It is difficult to put in a few words the vast difference between my experience in medicine in Canada and this elective. It was an excellent learning experience to see medicine in a truly low resource setting. I also saw a lot of tropical infectious diseases which are virtually absent in Canada.
