WHERE: ____Where are you headed?
WHO: _____What organization/institution are you working with?
WHAT:____What are you doing? Research? Shadowing?
HOW:_____How did you find your clinic/organization (google, someone you knew etc.)? Who did you contact? Or did they contact you?
FUNDING:______Are you funding yourself? Did you get a grant? Was there a fee for the program?
SPACES:______Are you looking for fellow med students to go with you? Are there openings for other people to go?
Can we post your name/contact info on the website? If yes, what is it? If not, no problem, we will list you anonymously.
