Research Assistant Conakry, Guinea
December 2014 --- June 2015
An utterly interesting and challenging project where implementation of the clinical intervention, outcome measurement, training, coaching and supervision filled the bigger part of my days. With problem solving, medical logistics and cold chain managment filling the gaps inbetween!
With teaching comes learning again: clinical research, GCP, protocols, but also... endurance and diplomacy to the expert level!
