Overall Experience
I learned a lot about going with the flow. It was hard as a bit of a control freak to come to the terms with the fact that most everything was not going to be 100% on my terms and that there was going to be some form of compromise involved. The friendships I made with fellow students on my program, laughing at these uncontrollab... - Brandeis University View Entire Review

It is important that as hardworking... - Westminster College, UT View Entire Review
It it difficult for me to summarize what I learned. At a most basic level I gained an understanding of another countries public health systems and improved my Spanish. On a deeper level I learned a lot about my own values and the type of person I want to be and the role I want to take on in the health field during my career. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
This experience was definitely worthwhile. I improved my Spanish speaking abilities a lot, I learned to navigate a big city, and I grew in my confidence and independence. I also learned a lot about public health and the Argentine health care system. - Santa Clara University View Entire Review

Prior to the program I didn't have any knowledge of public health (I'm a Biology major), but by the end of it I felt like I had a decent grasp on the field of Public Health and I could have an intelligent conversation with someone about the healthcare system in Argentina and talk about all its pros and cons. - Franklin & Marshall College View Entire Review

It was a different focus on public health that I didn't have. I do not think it is as worthwhile as I wish it could have been. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
