I completed a 4-week experience with CFHI during the summer of 2016. The Intro to Traditional Medicine experience in India was one of the most formative experiences I have had in medical school. I shadowed practitioners in reiki, naturopathy, allopathic medicine, and ayurveda. I also attended one-on-one teaching sessions with a 104 year old genius of a man. The organization is very supportive, easy to work with, and flexible. The experience was pivotal to my understanding of healthcare systems, rural medicine, and cultural awareness. The rotation was very useful to my medical career and presented a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to travel in India and southeast Asia. There was a good balance of education, culture, language skills, and travel. I enjoyed the experience so much that I will doing another rotation with CFHI this summer.
