So the time to pack has finally arrived. After months of preparations and a week of exams the reality of spending 2 months in Cameroon has finally hit me. I will be spending 7 1/2 weeks at Banso Baptist Hospital, a 250 bed district hospital in Northwest Cameroon. This will be my first trip to Africa and the first time I have travelled alone so I’m a little nervous but still very excited.
At present, I have just completed my 4th Year studying Medicine at the University of Dundee, a small city on the east coast of Scotland, UK. I’m originally from Newcastle upon Tyne in England so this weekend will be spent travelling back there to see friends and family before I leave.
