During the covid-19 pandemic, initially when there were no virtual opportunities of internship for students, FHTS provided us with that opportunity. Overall, the internship was a good learning experience for me, I learnt about the public health systems of different countries and also came into terms with the COVID-19 situation in different countries and states. It also improved my communication as well as presentation skills. This internship will definitely help me in my future profession when I work as a public health professional.
