Medical internship in Nepal

I had an amazing experience with this program. you have to be able to adapt and prepared to jump right in to something very different from North America. The educational experience was amazing, I was very well taken care of and learnt a lot! Everyone was very excited to teach me and show me things. I spent the most of my time in Emergency as that is my career goal. If you want to get down and dirty and hands on ...this is the program for you! ...and make life long friends and memories along the way!

Machine shop intern

Interning abroad allowed me to experience a foreign culture first hand while also learning skills that would help me understand the manufacturing process. Upon graduation from university I was able to list some of the skills I had learned on my resume which were definite talking points during interviews. My experiences in Ecuador were ones that I will never forget and I am very grateful to have had them. CrossContinental was by far the most affordable option and were willing to work with me to find a program that fit my needs. Jenn was great and was willing to answer any questions that I came up with in the months preceding my eventual placement. I worked in a machine shop in Ecuador which was appealing to several potential employers because it showed that I had real experience in seeing practical approaches to fabrication.

All four corners of the world and me in the middle of it

I will never forget my stay in Nepal. I went there with the intention of providing love and spreading joy. What i never expected was to get fourfold of what i had sought to give when i first set foot in Bhaktapur. The air and leaves radiate a steady energy, the people have so much love to give, and they make you feel warm and welcome without fear or favour. A special shoutout to Jenn of Cross Continental for ensuring i was thoroughly cared for throughout my stay, to Anish for the warm welcome ... and wifi! To Reena for the special tea, the beautiful motherlike lady at the place i volunteered, the amazing special kids that lent me some of their zest for life, and the four teenage girls i encountered while walking the lanes in the beautiful idyllic village where I stayed. Thank you, thank you, thank you. I received a VERY special gift from the orphanage that can't be measured. I didn't know the meaning behind such gift then but now i am beginning to understand. A special place, the orphanage and village, that touched my heart in special ways. Please, please convey my thanks to the lady at the orphanage and i pray that i will have the chance to see all of you again. Please forgive me for any mistakes i may have made then. And please ask the children at the home to add me to their facebook page. I am sorry i didn't act then to add them to my facebook.

Zhangjiakou Middle Hospital Internship

CrossContinental provided a great experience in the medical field for me. The transition was very smooth - I was accompanied from the train station to the host family home, brought to the interning hospital by the local coordinator, and supported the entire time. The language barrier was somewhat difficult, since I had only learned Mandarin for a few years and not the local dialect. However, the hands-on experience in the hospital was incredible. I was given the freedom to choose which department to work in and all the hospital staff was very friendly and welcoming. I watched a range of procedures and learned a lot about traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture and fire cupping. On weekends, I was happy to travel to other cities via the extensive train network.
