More Medicine in the Phillippines

By Dr. Susan Van Dyke
May 29, 2010

Picking up from the last post (clinic day 5 at Payatas, Manila, Philippines) We finished our Philippino clinic experience and it was a marathon! We treated over 2100 patients and provided them with free medications! Overall the clinic experience on the last day was just like the ones before. One or two big rooms with 4-6 small tables in each. One med student per table with a translator. Two physicians circulating to answer questions and double check things like, “I think this guy has a murmur” and “does this look like scabies to you” or “what is the proper dose of Amoxicillin for a 3 year old with an ear infection?” After we interview and examine the patient we decide what we can do for them and if the need to see someone at a local hospital. At the end of clinic we headed back to Taal (location of the volcano) on a 2 hr Jeepney ride.
