Anna G Nichols, Summer 2017 Participant
I loved traveling around Spain and learning about the culture. Also, I learned a lot about medicine and liked my experience in the hospital.

Summer 2017 Participant
My favorite part of this program was having the incredible opportunity to be exposed to the medical field unlike I ever have before. This was my first exposure to the actual life of a physician, and not only was I exposed to one, I was exposed to at least 20 different doctors who all spoke a different language than me. I absolutely loved my hospital and how kind, accepting, and tolerant my doctors were. I loved traveling outside of Madrid to the smaller cities and experiencing the true culture of Spain. I loved immersing myself in a way of life much different than my own and seeing a side of the world I would have never gotten the chance to do without the KU Office of Study Abroad and the Benjamin A. Gilman National Scholarship Program.

Summer 2017 Participant
The most rewarding elements were the doctors and nurses, who were very helpful and wanted me to learn and understand what was happening. The doctors would call us and make drawings to explain different procedures and processes.
