My name is Momoodou Kabir Manneh. I am 24 years old and a medical student, I’ve learnt to develop the art of trusting my instincts and acting upon them appropriately because not in everyday life will present to you in a clear cut picture. I’ve always been a hard working selfless person who cares more for his family and friends than I do for myself. I have grown to love medicine because it makes my heart so warm anytime I help in the treatment of a patient and they are discharged smiling, well and healthy
I am proud and lucky. AforA has done something for me that my family could not do. You have made the hard task of achieving my dreams easier and more realistic. You have given us light at the end of a very long, dark tunnel. With education, the prospects of my country now seem brighter. Your investment in me, my family and country will bring forth profits that you have never imagined. Thank you so much AforA!
Fall semester 2016:
In the month of March I sat to the Part 2 Professional Examination of the medical school in which I had a credit in both Laboratory Medicine and Pharmacology
Fall semester 2017
March this year, I sat to the part II medical school professional examination on Laboratory Medicine and Pharmacology which I passed with and credit in both courses. Secondly, in May this year, my cohort had our community medicine Community Diagnosis postings in the village of Gunjur. The aim of the posting was to visit people in the own homes and community to get to see and have a feeling of how they live and manage themselves and their surroundings to prevent against infection and diseases. I had the opportunity to learn thier cultures and lifestyle and also interact with the residents of Gunjur and its surrounding villages. In July, we began our Internal Medicine I postings. During this time I learnt many disease conditions and their managements. In September, we began our Obstetrics and Gynecology Junior postings rotations. There I learnt to value women even more considering how much trauma and pain they go through to bring lives in to this world. I was further fortunate to conduct one delivery of a life male neonatal weighing 2.9kg. We are currently doing our end of placement examination on obstetrics and gynecology.
Spring semester 2018
We successfully underwent surgery 1 postings for 8 weeks where we had the opportunity to see real life surgeries mostly open lapartomy, pedal amputations and internal fixations of fractures. There onto we moved into paediatrics 1 posting for a further 8 weeks and learnt about childhood medicine, medical conditions and management. And we also learnt about the major diseases affecting this age group. Now we are into the 5 weeks of surgery 2 postings and so far so good. We are going to theatre attending rounds and I am happy to say I’ve done two laceration suture closures one of the face the other on the thigh at the emergency department and they were beautiful stitches
So far so good. We’ve havery completed surgery 1 and pediatrics 1 postingso and we are currently we are on surgery 2 postings
