International Experience

Since our pre-health students are often concerned with global issues and display an interest in other cultures, they frequently take advantage of opportunities for a semester or yearlong study abroad.

Some also spend a year or two after college with such service organizations as the Peace Corps and Americorps, or they may study or work abroad funded by post-graduate fellowships. International experience is another way to develop resourcefulness and maturity, along with sensitivity to people from very different backgrounds. It is particularly attractive to graduate programs in the health sciences because of the current diversity of patient populations.
