“The exchange program has been a priceless opportunity for growth both intellectually and socially. Through this experience I have learnt to be flexible and adapt to new environments and systems especially with the language and cultural differences here in Italy. I have also been exposed to a number of disease conditions that I had previously only read about in books in addition to making numerous new friends and academic mentors’’.
