Anesthesiologist Julia Sobol: Modifying Your Practice in the Field
When a piece of equipment she relies on in the United States wasn't available in her MSF mission, anesthesiologist Julia Sobol learned to modify her practice.
Julia Sobol is an anesthesiologist from New York City, whose first MSF assignment took her to Jahun, Nigeria for 2 months. Here she describes the set-up of the program in Jahun, where MSF provides obstetric care and offers surgery for women with vesicovaginal fistulas. When a piece of equipment she relies on in the United States wasn't available in the field, Julia learned to modify her practice.
