Students and Teachers


I love this moment, as Dr. Beryl Akinyi gently guides the hand of her trainee to show her the proper hand position to place a suture.

I love this moment even more because it is a picture of dreams achieved and countless glass ceilings shattered: three Kenyan females performing a mastectomy.

Beryl finished her PAACS surgery residency at Kijabe Hospital and  has become a skilled general surgeon and an excellent teacher.

We are honored to watch the student become the teacher, the greatest gift any of our surgeons who have invested their lives at Kijabe could ever receive.
