What Students Are Saying

  • “I had an amazing internship experience. I learned so much and met some wonderful people. I felt very supported in Durban. The CFHI coordinators were very involved and approachable, and I know that if I ran into any challenges, they would have been very supportive. The placement process was very easy and went smoothly, as far as I can remember.”
  • “The most rewarding aspect of my study abroad experience was the rotations that we went on and the doctors, nurses, and patients we got to meet. The rotations informed what I do and do not want to pursue in my career and life, and I learned so much that classrooms alone could never teach me.”
