If someone goes on a medical internship abroad in the summer for 1-2 months how would it be viewed by adcoms? A lot of people say it's just going to be shrugged off as tourism. However, what if the program entails doing more than just shadowing and you do more than explore the hot spots in surrounding areas? Does it look good to go to a foreign third-world country? If someone from an admissions committee could answer that would be really helpful. I'm on the very brink of signing up for one, so I'd like to get your opinions. Thanks!
