“I chose Cape Town for my internship destination because one of my best friends did a study abroad in Cape Town and loved the city. From my experience, I can say the same thing. I’ve had so much fun in Cape Town and I’ve found the city offers something for everyone. Personally, I loved my internship experience because I got to participate in the clinical experience more than I would have at home in the States. I attained a better understanding of the thought processes of doctors in a community health setting and I connected with the staff very well. I advise future interns to be open to activities, no matter how small, and go to places where you can meet new people because the locals in Cape Town are friendly and open to great conversation.”
