Fringe Benefits: 23%

The chance to participate in the Global Health Residency Scholars program (GHRSP) was a unique and unforgettable opportunity. I personally experienced a breadth of activities while in Ethiopia including participating in medical student education and testing, observing unique and specialized surgical procedures, and participating in daily team rounds with the residents and attendings of Addis Ababa University.
