For many in our community, part of our medical and dental-practice work has involved overseas service.
This allowed us to take what we learned in the classroom, and in our practices, and put it to the test in difficult environments. In this way, we’ve become better clinicians, serving our patients more thoroughly with tested techniques.
From improvising bandages, to using car batteries to power lights way out in the bush, we have allowed our limits to expand so that we can become better at our work back in the US where things may (or may not) provide as challenging an environment.
Though the Peace Corps is not for everyone, we hope that you all enjoy this video.
