I am a 4th year medical student from Ohio University Heritage College of Osteopathic Medicine (OUHCOM). For my final rotation of medical school, I am completing an international rotation in Angola, a country in southwest Africa. My preceptor, Dr. Kubacki, is a graduate of OUHCOM and lives here as a medical missionary. Portuguese is the national language here, so I named the blog with the Portuguese word for adventures: aventuras. I will be sharing my adventures and lessons learned on this blog throughout my month here.
