“I have been searching for Mozambique for most of my professional life. It is the “end of the world” urologically speaking, with only two fully trained urologists to service a population of 20 million. It is an amazing place to visit as the need is so great. It was amazing to see how much they have learned and improved in the 4 years since I’ve been back.”
