Hô, Ghana

This 11-day training program offers mixtures of non-medical activities with an impactful and meaningful ultrasound training and care at two health care centers located in the Volta Region of Ghana. Starting and ending in Accra, the capital city of Ghana, this program will make a stop in Ho before students settle in for their Ultrasound Training program in the Adaklu District.
This is the first student group from the University of California, Irvine to travel to Ghana to collaborate with local communities. The program hopes to create a sustainable ultrasound program at Mimi Clinics and Nutifafa Health Center by providing local health care providers with the skills and equipment to continue the program after the training in collaboration with Butterfly ultrasound devices. In addition to the ultrasound training, students will have the opportunity to shadow local health professionals.
