International Health: Alumni Who Studied Abroad Share Their Experiences

It is the most important influencing factor for my career.” A student in medical school stated, “it was a tremendous experience to get to visit places that make and develop health care policy for the entire world and to interact with the health care professionals responsible for policy.” Alumni from 2001 to 2006, some in graduate programs, will speak.
