Maybe some of us ever wondered about traveling to other countries.
Visiting their cool tourism spots, surfing,
tasting the delicious traditional cuisine,
eye-witnessing the amazing cultures, and even... shopping!
That'd be a great holiday everyone could wish for!
But what about doing a CLINICAL CLERKSHIP program overseas?
Have you ever wondered about it?
That'd be a great experience for an adventurer medical student like YOU!
Get ready for an exchange program!

More than 17 000 islands; Population: 238 500 000; Climate: tropical; hot, humid; cooler in the highlands.
Friendly people, great cultures, and beautiful places available in INDONESIA
There are 33 provinces and each province is sub-divided into districts and each district into sub-districts. As decentralization had been already implemented, the 349 regencies and 91 municipalities are now the key of administrative units.
Each sub-district in Indonesia has at least one health centre headed by a doctor, usually supported by two or three sub-centres, the majority of which are headed by nurses. Health centres mainly provide eight programs. Most of the health centres are equipped with four-wheel drive vehicles or motorboats to serve as mobile health centres and provide services to underserved populations in urban and remote rural areas.
At the village level, the integrated Family Health Post provides preventive and promotive services. These health posts are established and managed by the community with the assistance of health canter staff. To improve maternal and child health, midwives are being deployed to the villages.
The hospitals are usually the general hospitals which are used by the Indonesian students for clinical clerkship.
Some universities now have the Problem Based Learning for the curriculum.
Indonesia has around 300 ethnic groups, each with cultural identities developed over centuries, and influenced by Indian, Arabic, Chinese, Malay, and European sources. Traditional Javanese and Balinese dances, for example, contain aspects of Hindu culture and mythology, as do wayang kulit (shadow puppet) performances. Textiles such as batik, ikat and songket are created across Indonesia in styles that vary by region. The most dominant influences on Indonesian architecture have traditionally been Indian; however, Chinese, Arab, and European architectural influences have been significant.
Students will be placed in boarding house or host family. The host family will be Indonesian student or lecturer (doctor).
Meals will be provided 2x per day.
Mountains, high land, beaches, traditional performance, traditional shops
Local transportation from the boarding house / host family house is using public transportation such as bus, minibus.
For national transportation (usually from the capital to other cities) is using plane, train, bus, even ferry (if you have to go to another island).
It's pretty hot here for you who have 4 seasons. Even if it's raining, the weather can not be less than 18 degrees =)
Social life in big cities are almost the same like in your country's big city. But in the "middle" cities are in the middle between modern and traditional life. Each city has its own culture.
