“This summer I had the amazing opportunity to visit Nanjing and Beijing as part of the ‘China: Community Health and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM)’ study abroad program. As someone with experience working in both hospitals and pharmacies, I really found it interesting to observe those same environments while on the other side of the world. During shadowing, I learned that Chinese health professionals tend to integrate natural remedies/therapies in conjunction with conventional medications/procedures to provide a full spectrum of care to their patients. I think this realization not only speaks to an ever growing globalization of medicine, but also highlights the benefits and importance of incorporating various perspectives and cultures into practice. As I continue to travel, I hope to keep incorporating the unique wisdom different regions have to offer in order to more fully empathize with others and become a better medical professional. I look forward to seeing how my adventures in China will help influence my career in healthcare and the rest of my future!” Photo and caption by Dahiana Arenas. .   #SITStudyAbroad     #China    #NotYourOrdinaryStudyAbroad     #SITChina     #StudyAbroad     #TravelPhotography     #Travel     #CommunityHealth     #TraditionalChineseMedicine

  #studyabroadbecause   How is your study abroad experience coming along ? Find out about our student this semester. « Hey y’all, my name is Miranda and I’m a junior at Duke University. One of the best aspects of Senegal so far has been my host sister, Ndeyla...in the span of a few short weeks, we’ve quickly become thick as thieves! Yesterday, she took me to Lac Rose to explore for the day, a pink-tinted lake about an hour outside of Dakar. It was just the two of us, which made it much more of an adventure as we boated on the lake, visited the camels, saw the nearby beaches, and even hiked (and got lost many times!) through the sand dunes. At the end of the day, we ended up losing our driver, so we had to walk a couple of kilometers to the nearest bus stop, take a bus to the nearest city with a taxi spot, then take a series of buses and taxis back to Dakar. The hour-long commute quickly became three-hours, but overall, it was just another one of the incredible and challenging adventures I’ve had in Senegal so far (and something that has definitely brought my new sister and I closer!). À la prochaine! » . .   @mirandawolford     #sitstudyabroad     #worldlearning     #adventure     #hiking     #host     #experienciallearning     #notyourordinarystudyabroad

"This past Spring semester, I studied in Cameroon, in Central Africa with the SIT: Social Change and Development Program! I love traveling, and I’ve always wanted to study abroad, but this experience was something that I still can’t believe I did. I know everyone says that studying abroad is life changing, but I promise you, they’re not lying!! The things you see, people you meet, and befriend, and the things you do will always stay in your heart, and your head!"

  #Repost     @sitstudyabroad   ・・・ "I had the opportunity to spend the past six weeks in Switzerland and Croatia with 14 amazing girls through the School of International Training. I climbed several mountains, ate far too many “bretzels”, and learned the importance of double checking the direction of the train before hopping on. I will cherish the days where we would run around train stations trying to make our train with less than 20 seconds to make it. I am thankful for the people I met throughout my journeys. Not just the people on my study abroad program, but the once strangers who became an integral part of my experience."
