THE GREEN LION
This program is based in a Government operated hospital, serving the community of Ho Chi Minh. Your main responsibilities will be a daily check-up of all patients, monitoring patients’ situations and exchanging advice with doctors, as well as assisting and consulting with them. Observation, recording and analysing will be a key part of this project. Upon arrival, you will discuss with the hospital director and his assistant the full extent of your role during your placement. You will be paired with an English-speaking, Vietnamese doctor, whom you will "shadow" for your entire placement. Participants are allowed to be involved with medical issues and give their opinions, which will always be taken into consideration. The hospital has an x-ray room, a children?s ward, an adults ward, as well as an operating theatre, all of which participants will be actively involved in. The exact roles played will depend upon the hospital’s needs at the time. But you may expect that the longer you participate in this program, the more responsibilities and tasks will be assigned to you. After gaining experience through your contribution to the hospital, you will be awarded a certificate at the end of your stay to reflect your accomplishments!
