Mark Thomas, New York Universtiy - Dental, Indonesia

I gained so much experience and confidence after working with EI. Managed to rotate in all departments ranging from Oral Surgery to Endodontic, Prosthodontics to Pediatric Dentistry.

Lisa Burk, University of Southern California - Midwifery, Kenya 

Elective International has a great program in Kenya, hands down. I wasn’t expecting to get nearly as much work as I did but was in for a shock.  The midwifery program exposed me to so much I wouldn’t have learned if I hadn’t chosen Kenya as an elective destination.

Michaela Daniel, University of Manchester - Medicine Elective

The EI staff is a friendly and supportive bunch who do a first-rate job of making sure people like myself who don’t travel a lot feel right at home.
