There was much to celebrate when four Monash MBBS students secured internships at the World Health Organisation (WHO) in December. Charlotte O Leary, Tom Goodwin, Liang Qu and Emily Yeung travelled to Geneva, Switzerland and returned with new insights into global and public health, and another stamp in their passports. Excited about the opportunity to intern at the WHO, Charlotte was keen to live in Geneva with her fellow classmates. We all knew each other through various means back in Melbourne, largely through the Monash global health community, so when we found out that we were going to be in Geneva together we started planning and have since become close!
