just thought i would post this for everyone..i have read a lot of posts asking about electives abroad, and i would highly reccomend it! i am studying abroad, and my school is really starting to encourage students from abroad to visit. i think it is a great experience to see a different view of medicine/doctors as well as an opportunity to see some different pathology. one great thing about it is that students in most parts of the world (not the US!!) are regarded as students and not scut monkeys. so, you may get to slow the pace a bit and have a mini-vacation at the same time as a rotation. anyhow, if you are interested in coming to prague for a rotation or two, send me an email. i am on the academic senate, and will try to sort you out! good luck.
