Summer 2018 marked our very first SCORE exchanges in Ireland, where we sent 2 students on exchange! We are pleased to receive lots of feedback from our outgoing students, as this is very helpful for interested medical students to get country-specific information. To learn more about past SCORE exchange experiences, see here.
You will face diverse cultures and ways of thinking, especially in the medical field, particularly when doing an exchange outside of Europe. The locals may have different expectations of you, and share a different healthcare system. Such differences are not necessarily easy to understand and adapt to.
In order to prepare you better for the exchange, we are working to offer you a Pre-Departure Training that will take place on a national level in April 2019. This will also be an excellent opportunity for you to link up with other selected students going to the same country as you. More details will follow closer to the date.
