My Experience Abroad:

I took two HSOC-related courses, including one that did a deep-dive into the Australian health care system, providing me with a global perspective on healthcare that appropriately complemented my Penn coursework.

Other Highlights:

  • Road tripping through Tasmania (and doing an OCR interview on the phone in the back of the car in the middle of nowhere)

  • Becoming friends with local students

  • Seeing koalas, kangaroos, dolphins, and seals in the wild

  • Yachting at sunset in Queensland with local yachters

  • Camping in the rainforest
