My 6-week rotation in Tugela Ferry was probably the most memorable and gratifying experience of my residency.  My days were filled with fascinating and challenging cases in the ARV clinic, in which I learned a substantial amount about HIV disease and management, as well as about medical care in a resource-limited setting.  I was also able to experience MDR tuberculosis clinic, home-based care visits, Philanjalo Care Center, and Kaylesha Orphange.  Through these experiences, I witnessed the depth of the Zulu culture, the compassion of the local care providers, and the beauty of the surrounding country.  And as a result, I feel that I grew as both a physician and as a person.
