Dr. Christian Osae Obirikorang: "I'm a Health Worker"

Spend one minute with Dr. Christian Osae Obirikorang, a lecturer in the Department of Molecular Medicine at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology's School of Medical Sciences in Kumasi, Ghana.

He explains why he chose to focus on health worker education and how he thinks eLearning will help his school train more doctors and other much-needed medical professionals. IntraHealth’s Carol Bales and Gracey Vaughn interviewed Dr. Obirikorang during a documentation trip to Ghana.

We are going to improve knowledge transfer from the faculty members to the students. It's going to improve the whole health system, at the end of day.
