"It was a wonderful opportunity to meet new people and experience a different culture. I can't begin to explain all the unforgettable memories I have from the adventures I went on and sights I saw with those on the trip. If I could do it all over again, I would do it in a heartbeat. I am so glad I took the opportunity to see so much of England and to travel afterwards and to see friends in Germany, Norway and Sweden. This study abroad experience with PhiDE was truly life changing and unforgettable."

"This was a once in a lifetime experience. Everything from the food to the trains changes you. I feel more confident and worldly. Honestly, this has been my second best decision of my life (the first being to pursue the medical career)."

My MHC is Me: An Immunology Short Course at Harlaxton College (June 29-July 11)
This program offers a unique opportunity to take an undergraduate level course in immunology at Harlaxton College. The program is open to students from across the United States and is co-sponsored by Phi Delta Epsilon Medical Fraternity. Dr. Carla Aldrich, a visiting faculty member from Indiana University School of Medicine, will be the course instructor and group leader. The class is a brief overview of the immune system, with a focus on the role of the Major Histocompatibility Complex (MHC) in directing immune responses and covers topics that are relevant to students interested in applying to medical school or other health sciences professions.
The Estimated cost of this program is $3,850 which includes: 2 credit hours of tuition, room and board at Harlaxton College for the duration of the program, airport pickup and drop-off, and excursions to Edinburgh and London.
The medical tour of London was about 18th century medical practices and surgical techniques. Listening to the tour guide talk about the tools the surgeons worked with, and moreover everything they did not have to work with, was shocking and yet so interesting. Physicians back then had to know how to do really anything with the little they had. Without anesthesia, they not only had to be quite skilled, but also swift in their technique. I really enjoyed the gory stories he told about the surgical practices. Though they were dark and gruesome, it amazes me how they learned the techniques that are mostly still used today.

Dr. Michael Cullen teaches a three semester hour upper level course in Neurobiology. Dr. Cullen, Professor at the University of Evansville, and former professor at the University of Southern California School of Medicine, ensured this class matched a graduation requirement and helped students familiarize themselves with MCAT relevant material and medical school preparation.
"Dr. Cullen is an amazing professor--incredibly understanding of our travel schedules, and he always facilitates in-class (and after class) discussion about the subject matter, and even travel tips. The workload for this course is reasonable while still managing to be challenging."
