I am a PA student looking to complete my elective rotation internationally. I have looked into two different companies where I could compete my 6 week international rotation. The first company is Elective Africa, where I would complete my rotation in Mombasa, Kenya. The second company is Cross Continental, where I would complete my rotation in Kathmandu, Nepal.
Does anyone have experience with either of these companies and if so was it a good experience?
Does anyone know of any other companies, have any contacts or can provide me with information regarding an international rotation?
Any advice and/or help would be greatly appreciated!
Hello! I completed approximately a 5 week rotation at McCord Hospital in Durban, South Africa, and had a wonderful experience. I am unsure as to whether the contacts are still the same, but here are the emails to the two women I made my arrangements with.

Karen, I believe, was the personal assistant to Dr. Henry Sunpath who was technically my preceptor.
This was not through a company! I simply set it all up with my school and previous contacts. It was an amazing experience and I would go back.
Hope this helps!
