A Unique Programme
Our 3 week programme offers medical students the chance to develop their communication skills in an English-primed environment, alongside fellows from all over the Asia-Pacific region. In addition to acquiring effective communication skills in the English language and culture, a focus is put on honing scientific presentation skills and patient consultation skills in the clinical setting.
