I graduated in 2000 and after two years of residency I decided to do pathology training.
As you may have read from my previous posts I decided pathology was not for me so I decided to return to PNG after 3 years of studying in Japan. After one and half years working with a private clinic in Port Moresby I decided to work with the Lutheran Mission in PNG.
At the mission hospital I was expected to do everything. It was very challenging but it was either you swim or sink!
The hardest part was trying to do surgery again after 5 years of doing laboratory work only. I must admit I was very nervous but thanks to Dr Steve Lutz and Dr Raymond Saulep I was able to find my feet. The biggest thing was regaining that confidence in yourself. After that it was like clockwork. The message here I guess is you have to have people around you to help you achieve you objects. I am a strong believer of team work and you can do a lot with a team. Individually you can only do so much.
