The five students from First Affiliated Hospital at Sun Yat-Sen University are visiting Australia for five weeks through an exchange program organised by Curtin University in collaboration with Midland Public and Private Hospitals.

 As part of the program the students are observing specialists working at the hospital across a variety of specialty areas including intensive care, ophthalmology, general medicine and general surgery. 

The students are also attending Curtin University’s Medical School and working at a GP practice.

St John of God Midland Public Hospital Chief Executive Officer Michael Hogan said we are very proud to be collaborating with Curtin University on this important initiative and making such a positive contribution to the education and professional development of these students.

“The students will gain invaluable experience within a hospital environment and see first-hand the high quality care and variety of medical services, facilities and expertise provided to the local community,” he said.

“The program is enabling students to learn firsthand about the Australian health care system and see how it benefits patients.”
