After arrival at the airport in Shanghai, each student has to clear immigrations, pick up their baggage and pass through customs. The Shnaghai Pudong Airport is located about 20 miles from the center of Shanghai.
There are several ways to continue travel to the Education Center:
The Education Office established a Final Year Rotation Program for international, in particular German, medical students. The minimum length of the program is 8 weeks and the length of stay can be extended as needed. The department which are currently offering this program are Surgery and Internal Medicine. Since the teaching language is English, good command of the English language is a prerequisite.
Chinese language skills will be of benefit, but are not required.
Rotation ScheduleThe different rotation stations during an 8 week long PJ-internship are, similar to German hospital rotations, parts of one single speciality, depending on which the student decides. Depending on the program choice, the plan is altered (e.g. work in the OR or surgical specialities).
Day 1: OrientationTo provide the students an easy start, the first day of the internship begins with an orientation. Every student will be shown around all relevant facilities, such as the wards, the operation theatre, the outpatient clinic, the Shanghai East International Medical Center (SEIMC), etc.
Additionally, each student is provided with her/his official hospital ID and a doctors coat (Costs: 100 RMB).
Weeks 1 - 4Starting on the second day, the students will report every Day to their assigned wards and attend the Morning Meeting and Morning Rounds together with their assigned tutors. During rounds, they will have the chance to familiarize themselves with the current patients and their medical histories.
LeavingOn the last day of the internship, you can collect your papers in Prof. Zhao's office after filling out the feedback form and returning any items you may have been entrusted with (eg. locker keys, books, etc.).
