Medical Work Experience Internship, and Yoga Classes, in Madurai, India
         

It was a very busy town, and extremely hot. However, there was a lot more greenery and this added the colourful exotic atmosphere to Madurai.

Through this trip I have come to understand patient and doctor consultations, this being a privilege that is not available in England.

I have not only gained medicinal experience from the hospital; seeing surgeries and caesareans, but have also gained persona; experience like independence and responsibility.

The best thing about the placements so far is watching the caesarian birth on Aug 5th 2013 because it is something I can only imagine seeing in university many years from now. It hasn’t just been the many surgeries though talking to the doctors about certain patients has also been amazing.

I would definitively recommend this placement to anyone else as it not only gives you something amazing to put towards university but is also self satisfying.

The type of person who would suit this placement should be flexible, easily adapt to situations, adventurous and responsible.

A typical day:

• Wake up at 8

• Be at the placement at 9am to 1pm

• Come back home for lunch

• Do some washing or tidying or reading over today’s notes

• Yoga from 4-5pm

• Placement again 5:30 to 8pm

• 7pm dinner

• Fold washed clothes

• Bed

The experience of living with the host family has been friendly and welcoming.

They clearly explain aspects of the trip, introduce you to trustworthy people. The experience is amazing.
