NUHS Residency has signed an MOU with Gui Gang City People’s Hospital (GCPH)  on 12 April 2013. GCPH is a 1400-bedded hospital located in Guangxi, China. 

Through the MOU, our Programme Directors and residents from O&G, Surgery, Orthopaedic, Medicine and Emergency Medicine Department have been on various exchange programmes at GCPH; both to train and to be trained.

Residents get very good hands-on training supervised by our own faculty. This partnership is also a good platform for our residents to be engaged in humanitarian work.

Exchange Updates by Residents

Hands-on experience – nothing beats that!Quote

Having established firm links between NUHS and Gui Gang City People’s Hospital, it is extremely beneficial for NUHS residents training in surgical disciplines to have an elective posting there, which I never regretted and thoroughly enjoyed.

I participated in more than 50 Cesarean sections during my stay at the maternity department of the hospital. The consultants and registrars were very competent – guiding and assisting me in performing Cesarean sections for all obstetric indications, e.g. breech presentations, twins, failure to progress in labour etc. 

There were slight differences in how they perform their procedures compared to what I was taught previously but it was very heartening to exchange techniques and even fine-tuning surgical skills throughout the process; yet ensuring mother and baby were well. Indeed apprenticeship is the key to surgical training.

Friendships forged through learning and exchange

It had been a delightful posting with the maternity department as the doctors, operating theatre nursing and midwifery staff were most helpful and friendly to work with. There was daily exchange of ideas and information in the day-to-day management of obstetric patients, performing surgeries and even clinical risk assessment and management in the wards and operating theatre.  Every day is a learning day!

I also participated with Dr Mao, Head of Maternity Department, in a China’s national antenatal diagnosis workshop in Guangzhou during my stint there.  Additionally, given my research experience, I had the opportunity to share research topics such as paper reading and critique, research writing and planning of clinical research projects with the department.Group photo with nursing and medical staff at the Maternity Department, Guigang City People’s Hospital, China

All in all, it was a very fruitful trip.  I managed to learn and hone my surgical skills, practice my research skills and most importantly, make friends with everyone at the department. I will definitely recommend fellow residents to take up this opportunity and experience this unique learning journey with Gui Gang City People’s Hospital.
