My experience with p&e in Germany

01.12.2015 My stay in Germany was filled with a lot of different experiences from the food to the weather and the people as well as the medical practice itself. I had to get used to always being on the move. I arrived at Lufthansa airport at 8 in the morning with all my electronic and phone off. I could not translate any word in Deutsch and the check in process was a little bit tough and uncomfortable. You really have to have all your papers especially with the immigrants issue. I found the following words very useful on this first day :"entschuldigung, Sprechen sie englisch?" (excuse me do you speak english?).  Simon a medical practical year student in Giessen is the one who picked me from the airport. I was so excited that i asked Simon if we could walk around dragging my heavy suitcase on the hot summer tarmac that my tyres got worn out.

01.12.2014 Introduction
Germany with the population of about 80 million people is around 35 times bigger than Macedonia. As you arrive with the plane, you could have a view over the beautiful landscape covered with woodlands, numerous lakes and windmills, combined with great biodiversity. During the walk through the cities (Berlin, Magdeburg) there are still ruins from the old German architecture, but, unfortunatelly, much is destroyed in the world wars. Berlin is famous for its numerous cultural institutions, such as galleries, museums, festivals, nightlife, art and education.

01.12.2014 MY IPPNW JOURNEY

It began with MPW : Medical Peace Work Course
Just a little over a year ago, I did not know what the International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War (IPPNW) was. I was actually introduced to it by my friend Mary Iwaret who studies at the Nairobi University with whom we had worked with on various occasions on research projects. She wanted me to help recruit medical students from my university, Kenyatta University to take part in medical peace work projects. This was in December 2013. To be honest then I understood very little about her proposal. However, I spread the word and had about 40 students expressing interest in doing the 7 courses long online medical peace work. I think what made most students want to join was the fact that there was a workshop to be held in April 2014 and the certificates that came along with the course. I don’t think we knew how tasking the courses would be until we had enrolled and started doing the course work.

01.12.2013 Hello! I am Rana. I am medicine student in Dokuz Eylül Universty in İzmir. I started to fourth year.

Sunday 14 July, I  took the bus from Basel to Freiburg. After one hour I met with Gözde and Anna. Weather was quite cold and every restaurant and market was closed. We went to my flat. Anna gave me her bike and I was so glad.They gave a lot of information about Freiburg, Freiburg Universty and internship. I was determined to go to Freiburg University with Anna the next morning. And then they left. In my flat, there were three other students: Julia, Carmen and Lucie. My flatmates were really friendly and lovely. During the rest of that Sunday I took a little biketour through Freiburg.
