2018 Overseas Attachment Programme in the Department of Pharmacy and Clinical Laboratory at Chung Shan Medical University Hospital (Taiwan)
12 Aug 2018
This year is our 5th year of collaboration with Taiwan Chung Shan Medical University. 24 students of Higher Diploma programme in Medical and Health Products Management joined a 14-day attachment programme at Chung Shan Medical University Hospital in mid August 2018.
Students received lectures on fundamental drug actions, risk management and personal hygiene in the clinical laboratory. They learned and practised in the out-patient and in-patient dispensing sections, Chinese Medicine Division and Chemotherapy unit. Students also had the opportunity to participate in the preparation of herbal formula, deepening practice and aseptic techniques. Moreover, they experienced task-based training under the supervision of the clinical laboratory technologists from different medical laboratories, including the Blood Bank, Microbiology, Molecular Biology, Hematology, Biochemistry and drug testing sections. The programme allowed our students to gain valuable experience in clinical laboratory testing skills and dispensing procedures which was very useful for them in planning their studies and career in allied health professions.
