What should I bring to the site?
The main thing is that you pack light. Have a change of clothes that look decent, that wash easily, and dry well; shoes that are also comfortable, yet decent; any prescription medicines, and over the counter meds for various conditions (colds, allergies, cuts/burns, etc); and basic supplies such as especially batteries, films for your camera, dental floss, adaptors for South Africa's different voltage system for your cell phone charger and computer AD/C plug.
Be sure to bring your white clinical coat/jacket, and khaki pants to wear at the clinic and visiting hospitals. IT IS IMPERATIVE THAT YOU WEAR A WHITE COAT/JACKET, A CLEAN WHITE POLO/TEE-SHIRT, AND KHAKI PANTS when WORKING AT EITHER THE CLINIC OR HOSPITAL.
It is also important to bring your stethoscope, blood pressure cuff, a box of rubber gloves.
