Human-centered design approach project to design a mobile application to facilitate maternal health care access an utilization among internally displaced populations in Northern Iraq
A project to develop a mobile application to provide online psychological consultation services for populations affected by conflicts inside Syria.
The Good: Working with WAHA on multiple projects exposed me to varying stages and steps of project and research development. Some projects are still in the conceptions stages and others are in the implementation and evaluation. This helped me gain experience of different aspects of the project cycle and design. The combination of research and project management and implementation offered a nice balance that fits my professional development plans.
The Bad: As I am following another year of first year medicine to get the equivalency of my Jordanian degree along with the M2, its been very hard at some instances to keep up with everything. Lots of work and studies. But I also learnt a lot.
