The shadowing aspect of the program was definitely the most rewarding part for me. I feel like I gained a lot of knowledge about different medical issues and diseases from shadowing in the hospital. I really enjoyed learning how to interact with the doctors, and I feel I got a glimpse of what working in a hospital is actually like.
I think that my favorite part of this program was getting to experience an entirely different culture and different type of study abroad with other people from KU. It helped to build lasting connections.
This program stated that there is no language requirement but I feel like it would be very beneficial if students new the language of their host country. I went to Spain and I was lucky to be a native Spanish speaker but most of the people in my group had no Spanish background and I know that made it a much harder experience for them.
