Medical Interns in this project will be paired with a full-time Thai doctor and work five days a week (Mon – Fri) 8:00am – 4:00pm. In special cases interns may work on weekends and evenings. Interns will shadow the Thai doctor in their normal, daily routines and assist with professional responsibilities.
No more than two interns at any one time will be paired with each full-time doctor. The amount of “hands on” involvement while interning will depend upon the intern’s experience, education, comfort level, the length of the internship and the consent of both the attending doctor and the hospital administration. Interns who have completed course study and received their medical degree will be able to execute a more active role during their internships.
All of the doctors participating in the internship program have a strong command of English, having not only studied it throughout their educations, but many also having attended multiple conferences and seminars in English. Numerous doctors have also had supplemental training within the United States and other western countries.
The hospital has a wide variety of departments and services. Interns may be able to pick different centers and clinical areas of the hospital to focus their work on or to spend supplemental time in.
The hospital in Chiang Mai offers the following health care departments and services:
1. Ophthalmology (must study in this field)
2. Otolaryngology (must study in this field)
4. Pharmacology (must study in this field)
5. Family Medicine
6. Community Medicine
8. Emergency Room
9. Pediatrics (OPD/Ward)
11. Nursing (follow the nurses most of the time)
