My Dream Internship

This summer I spent eight weeks participating in a Public Health Internship. I was able to get hands-on experience in my career field. In addition to shadowing and observing, I was taught how to give physical exams and was even able to assist! This hands-on experience in the medical field is unparalleled to my participation in the US! I was able to do things I didn't think possible.

I was also able to travel on the weekends and experience things I have never done before! I went scuba diving, visited temples and tried new food all while challenging myself and learning so much about not only my host country, but myself as well! My host family allowed me to have the ultimate cultural immersion. At the end of the summer, I wasn't homesick! I got everything and more out of my abroad experience.

What was the most unfamiliar thing you ate?
I tried a local soup with chicken feet and blood... it's a delicacy in Thailand!

Amazing Chiang Mai, Thailand

From the tranquil temples to exhilarating night markets, Thailand never ceased to amaze me. I highly recommend an adventure to Thailand if you are seeking out exotic experiences to last a lifetime in your memories.
With the experience I have gained from working at a medical clinic, I will be able to provide better care to my patients as a nurse. This experience has given me a chance to become a better person.
At some point during your time abroad, you will feel culture shock from stepping outside your comfort zone or that suspicious knot in your stomach as you long for the comforts of home. This feeling can range from overwhelming to only a minor inconvenience. In my case, it was a slight inconvenience that went away easily with food—more specifically home cooked food. No matter where you travel, study, or intern abroad, a home-cooked meal is universal, and it certainly brings feelings of happiness to whomever shares the meal.

What would you improve about this program?
Interns could be taught more Thai phrases before entering the workforce.
