My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Child Family Health International, San Francisco, CA, USA
Overall, I had a great experience with CFHI during my Intensive Beginner Spanish and Healthcare program in Oaxaca, Mexico. I was able to observe doctors at two different government-run clinics. Both doctors were very friendly and enthusiastic about teaching me more about the how the public healthcare system works and about their cases. Gradually, they allowed me to work more directly with patients, from taking their basic measurements to assisting in basic medical procedures.
What I loved most about Oaxaca were the people and culture. My host family was so warm to me, as was everyone else I encountered there. I could always find performances around Zocalo, and it seemed that everyone loved to dance there! Oaxaca is such a community-oriented place with an incredibly rich culture, and it was the perfect place to develop my Spanish skills and learn more about the culture. The program was well organized and flexible, and I am very happy that I spent my summer before medical school doing this.
