Hi, I just graduated as an International Health pre-med. The first semester is not hard because there are not a lot of Ihealth reqs that semester. You would be in Human Bio (counts for both Ihealth and premed), Chem, and some GenEds. As you get older it gets more difficult because the Ihealth major has a lot of requirements. They just reduced the number of required electives which is good and I believe they are working to streamline the whole major a little more. Overall, I was able to do it but I took 18+ credits every semester and took Organic Chemistry over the summer. It helps if you are already proficient in a language because they you don't have to take 2 years of language. It was difficult but completely worth it. Your abroad time does not conflict with pre-med requirements and applying to med school from abroad was not only doable but an interesting point that I could talk about in my interviews. I loved it but a lot of people found that it was too much all at once and either dropped pre-med or switched majors. If you have more questions, feel free to ask.

If there is one generalization that can be made about Georgetown students, it is that they are satisfied, and in most cases, delighted by the education they have received on the Hilltop. An instructor can make or break a college class, and although there are always a few bad apples in every basket, the vast majority of Georgetown professors is respected and admired for their commitment to undergraduate education. Students speak with special fondness of their Jesuit professors, who are praised for showing a deep interest in students’ lives beyond the classroom. The only common complaint is that the TAs and younger professors who are saddled with the task of teaching lower-level classes can be a little rough around the edges in terms of teaching style. Also, foreign TAs may have trouble with English.
A Georgetown education is like most things worth having: It’s not going to jump into your lap, even once you’ve come through the front gates. The quality of one’s academic life at Georgetown corresponds exactly to what one decides to put into it. Skip class, ignore your reading, and scoff at those professors who fail to put on pyrotechnic displays in order to keep your attention, and you’ll probably leave after four (or five or six) years with the vague sense that you’ve missed out on something that could have been great. Go to most of your classes, do most of your homework, and make an honest attempt to get to know your professors, and your life and mind will be changed forever.
