- Please describe your activities while abroad (eg, seeing

Clinical duties involve pt H+Ps and review with the attending
on various services in one of several hospitals. I also
had the oppoortunity to work on a joint clinical research
project with the Ophtho and Geriatric Depts. which resulted
in some interesting, potentially publishable, data. Also
visit nursing homes (very infomative!!), rehab facilities,
GPs in the rural areas.

in addition to yours:
The staff are very accomdating. Anything you really want
to do can be arranged.
- Would you recommend this institution to other Penn
medical students? Why?
Fully funded scholarship in a well-organized setting with
plenty to do clinically. Excellent intro to different HC
system and styles of practice. Great place to learn how
to hone your PE skills as they are not nearly as dependent
on diagnostic tests. Edinburgh is beautiful and has plenty
to offer an enterprising student of life. Lots of free time.
Housing for me was very nice (not so for others).
