My clinical exchange in Malta was such a wonderful experience! Learning medicine in another country broadened my world view and strengthened my interest in international medicine. It was so interesting to see the similarities (and differences) in medical practice and in healthcare systems. I was able to see patients in clinic, assist with gynecologic procedures and surgeries and even help with C-sections. The exchange was well organized and there was a fantastic social program for international exchange students, including sightseeing and cultural activities. The best part of the exchange was meeting other enthusiastic medical students from around the world. It was fascinating to hear about each of their journeys through medical school in all the various countries. After my month spent in sunny Malta, I came home with a broader perspective of medicine, a renewed interest in international studies and obstetrics, tons of new friends from all around the world, and a pretty nice tan!
