Feedback about study program of OMC
3rd year student
Taipei Medical University
At first, I want to say thanks to everyone who help us finish this program successfully. Thanks every teacher and student in Osaka Medical College for taking care of us like their friends. It’s my honored to participate the study program in Osaka Medical College. Although this program only has two weeks. Each teacher prepare class and take us to visit facility very serious and completely. Even though not everyone good at English but they still kind to us.
About our school life, it’s a new experience to us. We didn’t use English or Japanese before. We only have English book and course materials but teachers speak Chinese.
During this program we got many information about what will nurses do for patient during hospitalization. Because of patient’s family trust nurses will take care well of patients so families don’t usually stay in the hospital. Even nurses during working time need do many things such as give drugs to every patient, help patient take bathe, etc. They still maintain enthusiasm and sufferance let everyone feel more comfortable although they are sickness.
Because not everything can learn in the classroom. So we have many chance to visit facility during the program. I am impressed in “ますます元氣會“. It’s not establish by government but only by ten friends with same idea. At first, it’s just a ten people club. Now, there may be one hundred people will participant them everyday. They will gather together by themselves to do exercise every morning. It’s very surprised to me. This is my first time heard that a group can grow up only by word of mouth. Because in Taiwan the community will held such as activity, but there is up to twenty people will participate so I think this group is very important and influence to Takatsuki city’s elderly.
Except school life, daily life is also a special experience to us too. It’s my first time live in abroad in such a long time without my parents. At first, it’s a little scared but curious. It’s very different from Taiwan when I live in Taipei but my hometown is Hsinchu during class. Because I can’t speak Japanese fluently so that I can’t have communication with each other successfully.
Because of these days, I know the importance about body language. It may help you express what you can’t speak in local language. And in the no class time we will go to supermarket to buy something what can cook by ourself. It lead us close to the local people daily life.
In the weekend OMC’s student also take us to travel Osaka castle and Osaka history museum. The weather is very hot that day, but they didn’t say anything about they are tired or annoying. It’s very appreciate take us visit Osaka city one day.
It’s an impressive experience that study in Japan. We learn many things from lecture and deeply understand what they do in the hospital, care center etc. There are many difference between Taiwan but both of them are very hard. Regardless of be a patient or families we all need grateful to them. Thanks OMC give me a chance to understand Japan’s hospital culture.
