Number of places: Up to two University of Sydney students will be nominated to represent the Faculty under this scheme.
Institution: As part of the partnership between the University of Sydney Faculty of Medicine and Shanghai Jiao Tong Medical School, students can undertake a non-elective placement at the Renji Hospital Shanghai. Students will be paired with a local medical student who studies within the English language stream of their program and it is hoped that there will be opportunities to learn something of Chinese language, culture and Traditional Chinese Medicine.
There is a wealth of information about our strong relationship with Shanghai Jiao Tong University and joint research and teaching activities on the East Asia section of our website.
Language: Mandarin Chinese language skills are useful but not essential for this placement. Information on language courses available through the University of Sydney can be found on our resources pages.
Duration: The placement will be for four weeks.
Other: We suggest you read the Impressions section of this site to learn about the experiences of previous students.
Applying: Please consult these pages for details on applying for a placement and scholarship support.
Resources: Our resources pages provide some valuable material on your health and safety and on some of the medical conditions and environments you may come across while on placement.
