Medical Work Experience Internship in Madurai, India
         

I was excited when I first travelled through Madurai as I have never been anywhere like it before.

Everything seemed new – the culture was very vibrant and there were so many interesting things to see. I was struck by how loud the traffic was, and how many people there were.

At Harley Rram, the nurses and doctors were very friendly which made me feel more comfortable sitting in on the consultation and accompanying the doctor on the ward rounds.

I feel I have become more independent since arriving in Madurai, and better at planning ahead.

My knowledge of medicine has expanded by looking at X-rays to identify kidney stones, seeing ultrasound scans taking place and talking to doctors about the various conditions people were suffering from. I have become a better communicator also.

Watching a caesarean section has to be the highlight of my trip, as it was fascinating to see a new human being brought into the world.

I am also considering surgery as a potential career option, so it was interesting for me to see different procedures which were needed to the operation to be successful, i.e. anaesthetising the mother, removing the umbilical cord.

I would recommend this placement to anyone else, especially people who aren’t afraid to venture out of the comfort zone and try something new.

This placement would suit someone who had experience in travelling and a desire to pursue medicine at university.
