Students get the opportunity to shadow physicians in different fields in medicine at Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital

OKB Hope Foundation organized a trip for undergraduate students from Cornell University to shadow physicians in the fields of Surgery, Pediatrics, labor and delivery, Emergency cases at Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital. 

From 6- 10 January, 2020 the students learned about how healthcare is delivered in Ghana under the mentorship of Dr. Chris Oppong, Dr. Maxwell Osei-Ampofo and Dr. Cynthia Amponsah.The physicians ensured that the students understood what they were doing by answering their questions and offering insights to the reasons why things are being done that way.

This experience helped students to understand how healthcare is delivered in Ghana and also gave them the opportunity to understand the population OKB serves.
