Our Student Stories

"The experience exceeded my expectations by far!

We participated in activities such as a surgical simulation where we were trained on skills such as suturing and the endoscope use, think tanks, a mitral valve replacement surgery observation, and histology and lab work.

The programme helped me cultivate a wide range of skills specific to the medical career that I want to follow as well as employability skills. Being encouraged to think out of the box challenged me and enhanced my critical thinking and analysis. I am now inspired to work harder and enlightened with new ambitions and goals."
