Randy and Carolyn are living in Lilongwe, Malawi for seven months. Randy is working for his US hospital, Cincinnati Children’s, exploring the pediatric unit of Kamuza Central Hospital as a possible global health site to partner with. Cincinnati Children’s is trying out the idea of sending their third/fourth year US pediatric residents for one month electives to KCH along with a senior physician (perhaps on a rotating basis) to learn, teach and share knowledge within the pediatric ward as it is also a site for Malawian interns in training. For now Randy is the senior physician who is orienting, teaching, supervising the residents but also actively engaged in patient care. Since the residents who come already have several years of experience in their training they are also able to be directly involved in patient care as well as engage in learning and teaching interns, clinical officers and nurses.
Carolyn will be supporting Randy and volunteering where options open up either with teaching English as a second language, mentoring teachers and/or Bible storytelling. Or in some other capacity not yet known or thought of.
We’d love to hear from any of our family and friends. Our emails are the same or contact us by leaving a comment on the blog.
