How to do an international rotation

By The DO Staff


For those ambitious, adventure-seeking medical students who are itching to travel after dominating their audition rotations or crushing their boards, an international rotation may be the perfect opportunity to explore a new language, a different culture, and a health care system outside of the United States. It may also be a great opportunity to fine-tune a language that you may be speaking with your patients in the future. I did my international rotation in Colombia, along with a virtual rotation in Vietnam. Both helped expand my knowledge not only in the medical field, but also in other cultures and ways of life.
