The article presents a study that evaluates the impacts of an international elective encounter on the practice habits of resident trainees. The study uses a survey to find the characteristics of the study group of 31 orthopaedic surgeons who completed residency trainings from the University of California at San Francisco. Results show that residency training should incorporate introduction to health care, and suggests that sending physicians-in-training to improve medical training is not ideal.
