For the 5th consecutive year, the Medical & Health Products Management (MHPM) Programme organised a 2-week summer placement for 22 Year 1 students at Chung Shan Medical University in Taichung, Taiwan. The training lasted from 18 to 31 Aug 2019.
This year, Chung Shan Medical University has modified the training programme which not only provided training on pharmacy and medical laboratory but had nursing and radiology experiential learning. Department heads of physiotherapy, occupational therapy and speech therapy were also invited to give lectures to students on the principles of their respective therapies. Each of them also arranged a short but fulfilling observation in their respective departments. The summer training programme covered a wide range of healthcare professions and was a very rewarding experience to the students.
