Before earning a medical degree in Ghana I had graduated from the Malawi college of health sciences with a diploma in clinical medicine in 2006. I then began a mandatory one year internship as a clinical officer at Kamuzu Central hospital which is a major referral hospital in the capital city Lilongwe. It was this time that I felt challenged and overwhelmed by the burden of disease and realized how inadequate the work force was. As a Clinical officer I was left to do all the cases that came to hospital including doing ward rounds, surgeries, deliveries and carrying out all necessary procedures. There were very few specialists in the hospital and so I received minimal supervision, all these challenges inspired me to yearn for more training. I left 8 months into my internship for Ghana where after 6 years of medical training I earned my Bachelor of Science in Human Biology and Bachelor of Medicine & Surgery( MBcHB) at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science & Technology School of Medical Sciences.
Worked as a clinical officer intern my schedule were attending to patients at out patient basis, taking patient history, physical examination, Diagnosis and treatment. Daily duties were conducting morning rounds on patients case presentation, carrying out procedures such as venepuncture, lumber puncture, ascitic tap, pleural tap, bladder catherisation, intravenous access. I also assisted in surgeries such as abdominal surgeries, head and neck surgeries, skin grafting. cesarean section. Perfomed incision and drainage of abscesses,digit amputations
