Working with the optometry school in Periera, Colombia to discuss ways our programs could cooperate in order to enhance the education of the students in each country provided me with an insight into the process in other countries. There is an appreciation by both parties that we are working together to benefit our students. With that approach, we have found ways to partner that allow students and faculty to have a wider range of experiences and a broader perspective as to how health care is provided in different countries. This broader perspective also involves exposing them to health conditions that have a difference in prevalence between countries and may not be seen without this type of partnership.
