Italy Departure.

Today I’m leaving for Italy to attend a Rockefeller Foundation invitational conference on global health, called “Expanding Frontiers in Medical Education”. This conference is gathering 23 experts in global health from around the world to discuss standardized global health curriculum for medical students everywhere. I have no expectations except to learn from the expertise of these leaders, and simultaneously listen with a careful approach to their ideas, philosophies and values. It will be particularly interesting to see if there is a generational gap in perspectives. There are only two medical students attending: myself and a student from the Medical School for International Health in Beer Shiva, Israel.
