My favorite non-clinic memory from the trip was getting to know the doctors after clinic sessions. I felt that I learned a lot from them because they were the ones who guided our medical training at all times in the clinic. This is important because they earned my respect in this manner. I also learned that the doctors from Panama are extremely different from the doctors here in the United States. I can say that the doctors from Panama have more wisdom than the doctors over here due to the social level of patients that they deal with in their everyday lives. More so, apart from clinically diagnosing them, Panamanian doctors have a higher probability of diagnosing patient's with psycho-social problems apart from health related issues. Whereas, this is not so common here in North America.- Angela, Junior, Hunter College
