I went to the FACES Kisumu clinic as a 3rd year medical resident. Every previous rotation I’ve done in an international context has been besieged by feelings of guilt, as I’ve only see disastrous clinical sites with desperate patients who don’t get the medical care they need, and who are treated poorly. The FACES program was a breath of fresh air. In addition to being very well organized in all respects for learning and teaching, the program is run and staffed by dedicated professionals who provide high quality, highly-competent, and highly effective medical care to a population that is actually very well served by them. They’re a model primary care medical home and HIV center, and my faith in such endeavors was restored by the experience.
