I wish I could say it was a KO but sadly, I’m still in the ring and still trying to somehow survive. My first rotation is community medicine, so we basically have a lot of trips (one every week) that we have to do some sort of assignment on. Initially I planned on typing out my assignment (it was a piece of reflective writing on the entire trip) but I don’t think I’m going to be getting that essay back any time soon. If I do get it back, I will definitely come back and edit this post.
Till then, you can look at this pictures.
The first trip was to a Rural Health Center. It’s basically a health center which is slightly bigger than a basic health unit. There were dispensaries for medicines, a male doctor (who wasn’t actually a doctor), two female doctors (one of which was actually a dentist) and several health workers who also conducted the EPI program. EPI stands for Expanded Program of Immunization.
The second trip was to the National Institute of Health.
I realize this was more of a photo-diary post, but I hope you guys enjoyed looking at the pictures!
