“Fundraising played a huge role in funding my two-week medicine program in Warsaw, Poland. To start things off, I set up a GiveForward online fundraising page that helped me raise $1,015. I then decided to bake up a storm and held 4 bake sales. I was also lucky enough to receive $2,000 from private donations from family and friends. My final fundraising activity was ‘Eat for a Cause,’ where I partnered with a local business and received $4 every time someone purchased a large cheese pizza.
All the money raised meant that I was only $55 out of pocket when it came to my placement costs. I don’t know about you, but I think that’s pretty good for an all-included trip to Europe!”
No problem! One week is still enough to fully experience one department.
Also no problem! Three or more weeks will immerse you deeper into the culture and allow you to experience a wider range of departments and clinical cases.
