    I want to do something productive this summer. We get about 4-5 weeks for break, and I was thinking of getting some international medical experience. There are so many agencies, etc., out there that I am not sure which one to choose. I want to have a good learning experience and at the same time enjoy it. Any ideas? I am thinking of going to Thailand right now.
    hope to hear from you soon!
    Thanks!

    PB - just have fun, please.

    I can't remember what year you're in, but there will come a time when you won't have the liberty to take 4-5 weeks off and play.

    Of course, if you think going on a medical mission would be fun and restful by all means go ahead, but don't do it because you think it will help your application.

    BTW, I highly recommend Thailand - lots of cheap fake software, but its worth the $2 for a few games until it breaks! Go to the Snake Temple in Bangkok to see all the little slitheries!

    I say relax and have some fun. Read all the books that you have been wanting to read (it may be a while before you are reading for pleasure again) and see all the movies you can. Try to take a vacation if you can. I am going camping in the wilderness for about a week so I get get away from the hustle and bustle of every day life. Also it is relatively cheap to camp. Hopefully I will be ready to go full speed when med school starts.

    Thanks so much for the website. It had a wonderful list of opportunities, and I have already written emails to many of the organizations. I hope to hear some responses soon!!
