When You Return Home from Abroad

We're so glad you were able to take part in the VSLO experience. Here are some tips as you reflect on your experience.

Complete Required Paperwork

If you will be receiving credit for your experience from your home institution, be sure to have your host institution complete your evaluation and that it is returned to your home school. 

Evaluating Your Clinical Rotation

In addition to beginning your practice of clinical medicine and learning the basics of being a physician, clinical rotations are a great chance for you to try on different specialties and start figuring out which one might be a good fit for you. As you complete each of your rotations, fill out and compare the evaluation questions below to assist you in gathering your thoughts, feelings, and reflections on each specialty as a possible career choice for you. Download the evaluation form.
