The hospital shadowing was the most rewarding aspect of this experience. Not only was I able to earn 80+ hours of shadowing, I genuinely felt welcomed as the doctors were extremely inviting and eager to teach me about the body and medicine. Being a pre-med student, this program helped me discover what areas of medicine I found interesting and could see myself possibly following as a future career.
Learning that it was okay to be open about how to best adapt, and how best to live in another country. Your managers are there to make the experience the best it can be, and its great to take advantage of their knowledge.
The consistent, job-like regime of shadowing a different specialty each week. I saw more in six weeks than I may have seen in the states in a year in regards to medicine.
