Clinic Blog: 2012 Mexico Clinic Blog
November 5, 2012
It's orientation day! Thankfully our clinic is literally about 3 blocks away from our hotel, I've been hearing stories about Thailand and South Africa clinics where the groups would have a 2 hour drive on a bus EACH way!! We feel very fortunate! The clinic building itself is also a fantastic facility; well lit, air conditioned, stone floors and a great layout for the clinic flow.
After walking our 3 blocks (only on the narrow sidewalk, there are no stop signs so cars have "the right of way") we had a group introduction, clinic flow overview and then broke up into groups to train. We learned how to work the various stations, pictures below (to view pictures in any of the posts you'll need to click on the individual post).
First day of clinic is tomorrow and we're all excited to put our practice and our years of optical expertises to use! We have a goal to see about 10,000 people during our time here, stay tuned for our progress!
