After four good years in Athens, Georgia, it is hard for me to say goodbye to you all. Today, I will be leaving behind the place where I first made my home, where I grew to become a man, and where my life bloomed. I will be leaving a community that has found a place in my heart, from Habitat, to the Institute, to the people I worked with in class, lab, theater, and work. I will always remember the cooking get-togethers, the workouts, the study fun, and the trips we had together. I will be leaving my life here behind, but I will never leave the memories. They will always be there no matter how far away from you I go. It is truly a great pleasure to have spent this precious part of my life here in Athens. To my friends, thank you. You have touched my life.
My name is Benji Ho and I am a family physician and 2013 graduate of the American University of the Caribbean School of Medicine (AUC), located on the Dutch side of the beautiful island of St. Maarten. My time at AUC has been quite a worldwide adventure, studying two years of Basic Sciences on the island, then completing my clinical rotations in the US as well as the UK. I completed my family medicine residency at Mercer University School of Medicine / Navicent Health in Macon, Georgia. Today, I am a board-certified family physician practicing outpatient family medicine in Macon, Georgia. I hope you enjoy my site as I share with you my journey. Thanks for visiting Diary of a Caribbean Med Student! more about me...
