Summer 2017 Participant
This program helped me decide what specialties I could see myself doing in the future and what specialties I did not like.

Summer 2017 Participant
The most rewarding aspects of my program were how much I learned inside and outside of the hospital. Inside of the hospital I learned so much proper etiquette, many medical practices and surgical procedures, and hospital jargon. Outside of the hospital, I learned so much about the country's culture and my Spanish-speaking skills increased dramatically. I always made it a point to put myself in situations where I needed to speak Spanish to locals and, by doing so, I forced myself to step out of my comfort zone and drastically improved my capabilities of speaking the language.

Brooke E Wietharn, Summer 2017 Participant
I had the opportunity to shadow in the surgical unit for three weeks. The best part of the program was gaining exposure in different fields of medicine. This exposure is very helpful when weeding out specialties in order to really figure out what you want to do. My aspirations of becoming a doctor were reconfirmed though this experience.
