COVID-19 Global Perspective from France

April 8, 2020

Dr. Melvin Donaldson is a fourth-year medical student that was studying in Paris through the CGHSR supported Global Medical Education and Research Program at the University of Minnesota's Medical School.

Dr. Donaldson traveled to Paris at the beginning of February for a training at a local hospital that was part of the largest hospital system in the area. His time was cut short due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Dr. Donaldson is now back in Minnesota and in quarantine at home. During an online presentation, he shared his experience as a frontline health worker during the early days of the epidemic as it spread through France. We have a recording of his global perspective available below.
