Sarah reflects on her ISL trip to Costa Rica

I participated in the ISL Costa and Panama Trip in May 2012 and absolutely loved the whole experience. ISL gave me the opportunity to practice Spanish and interact with patients in a completely new setting. I received patient care experience that I would have been hard-pressed to find elsewhere and the trip served to further confirm my interest in medicine and the pursuit of medical school. ISL provided a window to a world I had not been exposed to and I will carry the experience with me as I continue to explore and learn.
