International Health on the SDN
The Student Doctor Network (SDN) has a nice story about International Health. Have you ever had the opportunity to practice medicine in a different country? It can be quite an experience. Many years ago, I had the opportunity to practice medicine briefly in Mexico and Honduras. I still have some great memories from those international experiences. The public health needs in other countries can vary so much compared to the United States. A friend of mine works for the CDC and is currently based in China. Several other friends are working as primary care physicians in a private practice settings in China.
