Increased mobility of patients and doctors is changing clinical practice. This emphasizes the need for cultural awareness and cultural competence of medical professionals. This chapter offers an overview about medical mobility with a focus on psychiatric trainees. It may be of particular interest for those looking to gain international experience and enhance psychiatric skills; for example, trainees interested in subspecialties which are not available in their home country. Practical advice on how to organize a successful internship abroad is provided, based on insights from an existing exchange programme.
