I am very honored to participate in this international internship course. This will make me walk out of the familiar environment and experience different culture and education. I feel that it is a better experience than to get the knowledge from books and the Internet. For example, I can really learn what kind of medical care is currently planned in Japan and understand what Taiwan's medical system lack. Besides, we can also exchange ideas and opinions with local teachers and students. I will learn more valuable professional knowledge and skills about nursing and foster the ability of independence, language ability, social skill and broaden my international horizons.
The two courses that impressed me the most were Midwifery education system and Health promotion activities in Japan. The equipment in class is very new and realistic about Midwifery education course. In addition to models of pregnant women and babies in the classroom, there are also background music about baby crying, mother screaming and medical staff encouraging pregnant woman to increase the sense of presence. First, teacher show us the delivery process in Japan. Then we experienced baby delivery process. This practical course let me learns how to support mothers, how to deliver babies, cut umbilical cords, and judge integrity of placenta, etc. This will give me more confidence to train in obstetric in the future. While taking about courses of Health promotion activities, the most impressive thing is the healthy dance with grandparents. Every grandparent looks young and healthy. In population aging circumstances, I feel that establishing health promotion club is a good idea. It not only keeps the elderly healthy, happy and young but also makes the elderly not feel bored after retirement. Joining health promotion club can make many friends and improve the quality of life.
Finally, I am honored that I have this opportunity to join two-week international Internship course. I am deeply touched by the warm and hospitality teachers and students who showed us in Osaka Medical College. With the help of every teachers and students, we can complete the course successfully. Osaka Medical College always brings me the latest and most complete knowledge and skill about nursing care. For example, nursing care, medical safety, midwifery education, home nursing care, etc. In addition, when we visit long term care facility and OMC hospital every medical staff and caregiver always treats patients with a smile and give them love and patience. They are the role models I need to learn in the future. I think study in Osaka Medical College was the most wonderful period of my life.
