Review

This volunteer program was truly an amazing experience! The program's virtual aspect made it highly accessible despite travel restrictions due to COVID and also allowed me to connect directly with FIMRC members and volunteers from project sites located around the world, providing insight about global health in numerous different countries. The breadth of virtual shadowing opportunities was impressive ranging from primary care and chronic disease observations to psychology consultations to pharmacy sessions. The staff were always so enthusiastic and happy to answer any questions from volunteers and to share their knowledge and experiences making it a wonderful learning opportunity. In particular, the case study discussions as well as the pharmacy live observation sessions where virtual volunteers were able to get a taste of what volunteering in person might look like, lent themselves to creating an interactive and engaging experience. I had started out only enrolled in a single session, but it quickly became a second and then a third because of how much I enjoyed the program and everything it had to offer.
