Berkeley College in partnership with the Healing the Children Organization is about to embark on our first Medical Mission. We will be traveling to Guayaquil, Ecuador, and the medical focus will be on Pediatric Urology. The team consists of 14 members: two Surgeons, four Nurses, four Certified Surgical Technologists, 3 Anesthesiologists, and 1 Surgical Processing Technician. There will be five representatives from Berkeley College comprised of three faculty, one recent graduate, and one media relations person to document. The trip will begin on 6/7/14 and returning on 6/14/14. The team hopes to accomplish 50 pediatric urology surgical interventions for the week. In preparation for this trip, students at the Berkeley College School of Health Studies prepared & sterilized surgical instrumentation and helped pack medical supplies for the mission. Students from The MA, SPT, & ST programs dedicated their free time towards this endeavor. We are all excited and we will be blogging on our daily activities (surgery, clinic, patient recovery). The bloggers will be:
Dr. Anbalagan George, CST (ST/SPT faculty)
Nicole Willis CST (ST /SPTfaculty)
Joseph Charleman CST (ST/SPT faculty)
Ana Campos CRCST, CST (recent graduate)
