- Fantastic program, a true eye opener!01/27/15
Before joining the hospital rotation program, I wasn't exactly sure if this was the right career for me. But joining the program was one of the best choices I made, because it made it crystal clear to me that I want to become a doctor. They allowed us
to go to all the main areas of the hospital, we saw some really amazing cases and the doctors and nurses were awesome. They explained things so well, and were really friendly. During the evenings and weekends, the program manager arranged so many activities for us. We learnt some Thai cooking, Thai language, and got to go out in the local markets which sold some really cool items. I recommend this program to anybody who is thinking of applying to medical school, it will open your eyes to what your career will be like, and give you experiences you won't forget!read moreBottom Line:Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
