Medical Internship, Philippines Review

In the Philippines, I was able to travel with a rural health unit to local communities administering vaccinations and giving out maintenance medications. While I was unable to do some of the tasks, there was plenty to see to keep yourself interested. Everyone on my trip from my host family to clinic staff to volunteer staff were all very welcoming and accommodating.

Comments on local team, food and accommodation
Volunteers for the Visayan’s staff were very friendly and helpful. They checked in on their volunteers regularly and provided us with two retreats to see the area. The accommodations were accurate to described and I found the food to be quite good as the homestay was accommodating.

Any improvements to help us be better?
The only improvement I would add is more communication throughout the planning process as I did things that were not necessary or had questions I had trouble getting the answers to.
