Wpg Free Press: Student lends talents

January 20, 2014 — 

Canstar news reports on Faculty of Medicine student Mehdi Sefidgar, a fifth-year anesthesia resident, who boarded a flight to Pointe-Noire in the Republic of Congo on Jan. 17; he will provide charitable medical assistance there until Feb. 14.

“We’re really lucky at the University of Manitoba because some of our attending anesthesia physicians do charitable work overseas and in different parts of the world,” Sefidgar said. “Whenever they go, they offer to take a resident along with them for us to see what it is like to go, and for another set of hands to help out.”
