This summer, I had the opportunity to study
abroad in Portugal and I was in a pre-medical fellowship where I shadowed three different
specialties of doctors, including Plastics, OB/GYN, and Pediatrics. I saw ten different surgeries within those
three specialties. I was able to learn about the culture in Portugal. I found out about it through my friend. She did it the previous summer and she was
like you would love this, you should go do it. And so I applied, and then you have to go
through an interview process and letters of recommendation and stuff. So it’s a pretty competitive experience,
but it’s worth it and I’m hoping it will build my resume as well as it built my knowledge
in the areas that I wanted to study.
