VIIth AMHE Visit to Justinien University Hospital
I apologize for taking so long to get back in touch with you following the successful mission to Cap-Haitien, during which you performed beyond all expectations, despite the severe inclement weather. I came back pretty tired and I had to resume a heavy schedule of patients and operations the day after my arrival from Port-au-Prince. I applaud all of you who were stuck in Miami and could have easily elected to abort the project and remain in the US. On the contrary, you all found a way to navigate around the difficulty and by the second day of the mission, our team was complete. The continuing rain certainly was a hindrance, but that did not stop us. You were all great. You worked hard, tirelessly and I cannot thank you enough on behalf of the patients and the young physicians of Justinien Hospital.
As you may know, I conducted a survey of the interns and the residents on the last day of the visit and after a quick review of the answers, I can tell you that these visits of the AMHE to HUJ are well appreciated. I will forward the results to you as soon as they will be complete. Please send me a list of the procedures that you completed and the lectures that you provided, so that I can write a detailed summary of our visit. Send me also relevant pictures you may have taken during the trip.
I would like to express my sympathy to Macsie who had to leave us on the third day to care for her ailing mother, to Dr. Livingstone who had to face some familial and professional emergencies just before departing for Haiti and to Loronne who had to go on disability because of a trauma that she sustained at work the day after her return from Haiti.
I am extremely proud of all of you and would be proud to have you on the team if you decide to participate next year.
Finally, allow me to thank all the individuals who believe in our effort and who have supported our efforts with a financial contribution.
To all, I say thank you.
