CAPE TOWN, SOUTH AFRICA - OCTOBER 20: Medical student Lwando Mpotulo (c), age 23, follows doctors at the Trauma center at GF Jooste hospital on October 20, 2010, Cape Town, South Africa. GF Jooste is located in Mannenberg, an area with lots of gang violence and the hospital is the busiest ER hospital in the Western Cape province. Lwando and fellow students do the round with patients with the regular hospital staff in the morning. He is lucky to be able to study as a doctor at UCT, University of Cape Town but he struggles academically and and it will take 8 years instead of 6 to graduate.
