The event culminated in a reflective sharing session, where students eagerly voiced their profound insights and cherished memories. This unforgettable visit left an indelible mark, nurturing empathy and fostering aspirations for a future in healthcare.
Excerpts from student reflections:
“One experience that left a lasting impression on me was witnessing a demonstration of minimally invasive surgery. The doctor made it look effortless as they skillfully manipulated the tiny model and placed it in the correct position. However, when I attempted it myself, I struggled to even clamp it properly and eventually ended up flipping it away! It made me realize that something that appears simple actually requires doctors to invest a significant amount of practice time to perform such procedures with precision and without errors. I deeply admire the dedication of every medical professional.” – 5C14 LOU TSZ MIU
“After the sharing, I remember we also got involved in a tour to the emergency room, in which I saw a life-and-death situation in reality. Everything escalated greatly as the vital signs of a patient suddenly turned critical. In a blink of an eye, there were about five doctors and nurses surrounding him, some were doing CPR, some were injecting medicine. They did not say anything but I can literally feel their caring hearts through their rapid actions.” – 5D04 CHAU CHING NAM
“Listening to the professionals’ sharing was invaluable in shaping my university programmes and future career choices. I realized that being a doctor is not just about a high salary, but it also requires empathy and care for patients. Doctors are like superheroes, providing hope to patients in their times of need. I understand that bearing such a heavy responsibility is not an easy task. This visit provided me with a full insight into the hospital’s atmosphere and has encouraged me to pursue my dream of working in the medical industry.” – 5D10 KAM HOI LAM
