Physicians, Nurses and other medical professionals who wish to visit our hospital for medical training are welcome. The Observer program enables participants to watch procedures and surgeries; attend patient rounds and teaching conferences. Medical Practitioners' Act prevent observers from having patient care responsibilities or involvement in any form of volunteer research. The tuition fee will not be charged for all applications. The length of training is typically less than three months.
