Tyler Kupchick – 8/12

“Today was our last day of clinic in the city of Iquitos, and we still had a couple hundred of people lined up around the corner for our care. I worked the general medicine station with Dr. Reidy, an ER attending at Mclaren Macomb, and it was great! He let me “be the doc” taking the whole history (with a translator) then perform a physical exam and determine a Diagnosis and Treatment. We even had the opportunity to ultrasound a patients eye after he had been impaled with a foreign body months prior. Its been fun Iquitos, but now for the Amazon Jungle!”
