Jason participated in an 8-week medical internship in Cape Town with VACorps in 2017.

“My experience at Site B was crazy in all the best ways. During my time I rotated through trauma, maternity and the HIV and TB clinic. At each department, I gained an extreme amount of practical experience and was doing it all! In many ways, my time at Site B pushed me outside of my comfort zone and that was why it was so memorable.

“Other than my time spent working, every chance I got, I was exploring Cape Town. I learned to surf, climbed every mountain I could and I experienced festivals, wine crawls, outdoors cinemas and everything in between. For many reasons, I will never forget Cape Town and I will certainly be back!”
