I believe that my study abroad experiences will help me immensely as I hope to pursue a career in the medical field, specifically as a pediatrician. So often in medicine, the ability to relate to and effectively communicate with your patients is equally as important as the treatment of the patient itself. I think that the experience I received interacting with members of different cultures and backgrounds while abroad will greatly aid my ability to communicate with patients in the future.
