While studying at an International university with world class faculties you are exposed to different cultures, languages and people. This exposure gives you the confidence to interact with your patients regardless of their background.Part of being an effective doctor is about connecting with your patient. Being able to really listen and understand all the factors that may have contributed to their condition.

Given possible upcoming changes in the healthcare system, it could be additionally helpful to have experiences in practical clinical work overseas to better understand the context of the changes.
