LAO FRIEND'S HOSPITAL FOR CHILDREN
Documented by Ramona Sunderwirth, Program Director
in 2013, the GHD hosted the first ever EM rotation for Gambian Medical Students.
“The development of emergency medicine over the years has had a significant impact on healthcare delivery in the United States and beyond. ... The students who came to New York are outstanding and bright students who have a strong desire to make a difference in healthcare in their homeland. It is the desire of our global health division to be able to foster a regular exchange of foreign medical students to introduce them to emergency medical care
and place positive seeds in future healthcare providers in developing countries.”
