Guangzhou 2019 Shadowing – Jenny Lu

This program has greatly enlarged my understanding of the medical field and the healthcare system. Through exploring different departments in the hospital, I discovered what my interest is and what I will strive for in my future medical pathway. Shadowing in the hospital in Guangzhou was exciting and intriguing. The staff in the hospital were extremely welcoming and patience. They worked hard to spare out their precious time to explain medical concepts that I have never touched on. From looking at their interactions with their patients, I learned the importance of helping patients feel comfortable with sharing their feelings. Doctors not only have to complete their job as doctors, but also act as friends to patients. This experience has widened my understanding of the medical field, and I enjoyed my time in this program.
