Tanzania

Who are you?

Becky Ollerenshaw (Bullock)

Where did you go?

Tanzania – Mbozi mission hospital – rural mission hospital near Mbeya Mnazi Mmoja Hospital – Stone Town, Zanzibar

How did you organise it? 

Scouted hospitals with good reviews and contact details on the electives network and emailed the hospitals to arrange a placement(they take a while to reply!)

Why you would recommend it? 

Great experience, got to do lots at the first hospital and travel lots at the 2nd.

Never been to Africa before and Tanzania is a good introduction!!

Why you would not recommend it?

The bucket showers and squat toilets in the rural hospital
