Hi all,

I'm a medical student from The Netherlands and I'm hoping to do a 10-week elective in Shanghai in june-aug 2016. I know Shanghai East Hospital has a foreign medical student elective program. Is there anyone who's already done this program? Please share your experiences!

Thank you :)
I can choose one of the following departments: Internal Medicine, Surgery and Anesthesia. I heard most of the students choose surgery, but I'm not really the OR kind of person and I don't like orthopedics either. Do you have any advice?
I'd also like to know if medical students in China are allowed to do stuff (like IV insertion) or are they only allowed to watch "real" doctors doing those things?

I would also be interested in doing an elective in China. Ideally, I would be able to do it in Beijing. I'm studying medicine in Canada.
