Two final year medical students from Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München (LMU), Ignazio PISEDDU and Jessica RITTER, joined an elective attachment in our Department of Medicine and Therapeutics and Department of Clinical Oncology at the Chinese University of Hong Kong.
During the attachment, they enjoyed attending the case-based tutorials because they learnt to manage patients with different symptoms and diagnosis. And they were pleased to have met friendly medical staff, professors and local students. “They are very motivated teachers. Everyone is so nice and helpful. You can just stick to them and to experience very good places.”
Another impressive feature to them was the learning environment at CUHK. “The second part which I was excited was the modernity of all the facilities here. Students have a lots of opportunities to learn and study in a very good environment.”
In recent years, the partnership between our two institutions has kept on growing, from the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) for a medical elective student exchange programme to the participation in the Global Alliance of Medical Excellence (GAME). Coming up, we look forward to welcoming more students from LMU and further expanding out collaborations.
