Umbra Student Accepted to be Hospital Intern

Christina McDowell, a biology major from the University of Richmond, has accepted an internship offer from the Clinica Liotti in Perugia. Christina worked with Umbra staff members to arrange an internship upon her arrival to Perugia in order to improve her language skills and to learn about Italian hospital routines.

This internship adds to Christina’s volunteer experience from the United States. The internship will require Christina to observe the Italian doctors from several different departments within the hospital. This is the first internship for an Umbra student this semester as the staff works to create more opportunities for students to immerse in all aspects of Perugian life–including cross-cultural professional internships.
