Abstract

In a globally interconnected world, internationalization of medical education has become increasingly important. While many
programs focus on international programs for clinical students, the number of programs for preclinical medical and dental
students is small. Based in the Anatomy course, the program presented here involves early international collaborations between
preclinical students from six countries. Our work involves small-group video sessions and a large international student video-
conference (including cultural and didactic components). The online connections progress with in-person basic sciences summer
internships undertaken at the international partner institutions. This collaborative program features unique elements that facilitate
cultural exchange and help develop leadership skills in healthcare early in a student’s career. We present recommendations for
international program implementation.
