It is now less than a week before my departure. I am getting excited and nervous at the same time. I am nervous about my professional language use or vocabulary. I might have trouble communicating with colleges and patients in a professional manner because some of the professional medical words in Chinese are not familiar to me.
Cheer up YuYu!:D How bad is going to be? My Chinese should be a little better than my Finnish. LOL 😀 The funniest thing is that I am a Chinese citizen doing my practice in China BUT I am representing as a Finnish student.(Because I am a student from Finnish university)
I contacted my international coordinator through email, it seems that everything is getting ready for me. A nice apartment near the hospital which is located in the center of BeiJing is prepared for me with internet. My timetable of first week is planned and scheduled. Everything is planned as I wished for. My final clinical training will be four-hundred hours in ten weeks. So far it is scheduled as three weeks in Emergency Room, three weeks in Intensive Care Unit and last four weeks in the Operating Theater. The coordinator of the host institution is very thoughtful, since she puts the first three days as my observation days in three departments, which gives me a general idea of my practice for the entire ten weeks.
I hope that I will learn as much as possible during this ten weeks and will continue share my experiences here.
Attached below is my first week timetable:
