Registrar Spotlight

1st year registrar from Maseru, Lesotho.

To be a doctor who can make a difference, who not only cures the disease but heals the patient holistically.

I feel like I'm becoming a better person with this program.

COVID-19 pandemic as greatly affected the quality of our patient management. Physical distancing and masking has impacted the doctor and patient relationship, and less opportunity for human “touch” as we have limited or physical examination of patients. There are also frustrating stock outs of PPE, unavailability of oxygen and many medications that are needed to treat patients.

Working in resource limited settings, there are often no reagents for laboratory tests. This makes it hard for us to treat the diseases we know how to treats such as HIV and TB that are so common in the country.

I’m also an aspiring entrepreneur!
