Health internship abroad

I participated in a semester-long health related internship in Santo Domingo, where I worked at a children's hospital and at a local NGO that helped diabetic children. My internship allowed me to apply the skills I learned in my undergraduate program (public health), while also teaching me skills that I will need for my future career (medicine). This internship in Dominican Republic gave me the valuable opportunity to see and learn things that I would have otherwise not have been able to in the United States. My bosses were always incredibly understanding and flexible with me, and InteRDom staff was always easy to reach. Beyond this, I felt that I really got the opportunity to go out on my own, be independent, and explore Dominican culture first-hand. I loved this experience so much that I have decided to extend the internship for a longer time!

Service Learning in the Dominican Republic

I studied abroad with InterDom in summer 2012 through the City College study abroad program. The purpose of the program was to use gardening to empower and strengthen the collective health of the community. I got to work with prominent organizations and government agencies and be involved in the implementation of an international initiative. The experience was invaluable to my academic and professional development. One of the best experiences of my life. The housing was phenomenal (big spacious rooms, modern furniture, living room dining room kitchen, private bathroom) and safety was not a concern-- there were security guards 24/7 watching the premises. There were also many opportunities to immerse in the culture and to form friendships with the local volunteers (they were very friendly and welcoming). The food was fresh and mostly organic. There were also supermarkets where I could easily purchase packaged American products--but I preferred the authentic Dominican cuisine. The daily expenses for food and taxi were cheaper than it is here in NYC.The staff was genuinely friendly, helpful and made sure we had the best experience possible. If I could do it again, I would!
