A student who travelled to India as part of an medical volunteering project has told Hucknall Rotary Club of her experiences.
Pippa Carr was one of twelve health sciences students from Basford Hall that went out to Southern India for the ‘life-changing experience’ which gave her the opporunity to study the Indian health care system at first hand.
Ian Young, of Hucknall Rotary, said: “The students were allowed to go into every type of ward possible and even operating theatres experiencing many things and witnessing a broad range of Indian healthcare.
“The trip gave students the opportunity to question their own professional understanding of ethics because of the different customs and standards they were exposed to.”
Pippa was invited by Caroline Houldsworth, a teacher in Health Sciences at Basford Hall, who has recently joined Rotary in Hucknall.
One student said: “The trip was exhausting but so worth it and superb to face so many healthcare challenges.”
