The College provides students with opportunities to study overseas to earn a portion of their required Elective APPE rotation credits.
International rotations offer students the experience of working alongside practicing professionals while serving communities abroad. In doing so, they not only expand their knowledge and skills but also gain a global perspective on health care.
In conjunction with the clinical or research aspects of the experience, students are given opportunities to broaden their understanding of a given region by learning about traditional approaches to medicine and exploring historical and cultural sites.
Limited international APPE opportunities are available and have recently included Italy, Japan, China, South Korea and Canada. More information is shared with students during the APPE Orientation course offered during the P3 year.
