the program meet my expectations


My university  has a collaboration with my host, and teach methods and systems are similar. It was there easy to blend into the system.


I noted that there was more emphasis on system contact and less on patient contact.  The students were very weak in clinical methods , however were very willing to learn. They  appreciated their  deficits and went along way to remedy them


I had opportunity to be involved in peer exchange of knowlegde and skills
