Connecting and sharing experiences with the local host surgeons and residents was the highlight of my trip. It was eye-opening to see the level of dedication these doctors have towards their patients and how determined they are to increase their breadth of knowledge through continuous learning and education. Notably, it was an honor to work alongside Urologist Dr. Madina Ndoye, a role model for female surgeons in Africa.  It was a privilege to be able to operate with her and show the next generation of young women surgeons that it is possible to achieve your dreams.
