Abstract: International experience is becoming more and more popular among medical students, but few have been strictly evaluated. We used ESM to characterize the experience of medical students participating in the one month University of Chicago geographic medicine scholars program (gmsp) in Hyderabad, India. In the first and third weeks, the watches worn by the subjects were set to sound randomly eight times a day. When reminded, students report their activities and rate their participation and emotions in the booklet. All 11 student participants responded to 59 of the 816 alerts. 41 of beeps occurred during formal structured activities (i.e. lectures, clinics) of gmsp. Students reported that structured activities were more interesting (6.05 vs. 4.14; ), more challenging (3.75 versus 2.48; ), and more enjoyable (6.08 versus 5.36; ) than unstructured activities. Our results show that future global health efforts should augment the use of structured activities.
