"The difference to work in Germany is huge"

Ghana - 4 weeks

Medical: Medical Students

We are two medical students from Germany in our 5th year. We came together to do an internship for 4 weeks at Central Aflao Hospital. During our stay we have been to the laboratory, dispensary room, treatment room and consulting room. Nearly every day we went with Dr. Nkansa to the wards rounds. Most of the time the work was quite boring, there are not enough patients for too much staff. The difference to work in Germany is huge. Here three people do the work of one. Physical examinations and lab test are often not by the doctors even though they have the technical / lab possibilities here.
