My Day in Surgery at Groote Schuur Hospital

One of our students – Rafael from Brazil – got to experience something very unique for an English student. He got to observe a surgery at the same hospital where the first heart transplant was done. Here is what Rafael had to say about it:

Rafael Surgery 1Today I had a great experience at the university hospital. I woke up early and caught a taxi. The taxi driver was very friendly, he talked a lot during the trip.

At the hospital I met with Dr S at about 3:20am, he showed me the hospital and introduced me to all the staff. I was warmly welcomed by everyone. We talked about my work in Brazil and they explained to me their surgery service.

I observed a fantastic facial reconstruction during the 5 hour operation. I met other students and we exchanged phone numbers.

I really enjoyed it – it was an amazing experience!

I am grateful to my teacher who organised this opportunity for me.
