I believe the value of a global health experience is more than in learning medicine.At the level of a medical student it is a challenge to make any significant contribution to medical care. We are lost enough in hospitals in the United States, and . the addition of a language barrier makes it more difficult to learn and assist. The real value of a global health experience is in seeing and living in a completely different culture and healthcare system. Opening our eyes and expanding our perspective on how people live in a different country aids in our development both personally and professionally.
