Very valuable dental experience06/03/2015How could this program be improved?
The quality of the food at the house has to be improved. Perhaps cook with unused cooking oil for each meal? I have no idea about the cooking practices in place but any improvement is welcomed.
It would have been great to spend more time socialising with everyone at dinner time instead of traveling to the city centre for food! The city is like 1 hour away by taxi btw
Gap Medics Thailand06/03/2015How could this program be improved?
Some of the doctors that I shadowed had very poor english/strong accents and therefore it was hard to understand them and know what was actually going on. Although, most of them are aware of this and try to make themselves as clear as possible.
I also would change the class times at the house, they make it difficult to enjoy Thailand and visit various places. Maybe a class after dinner would be better?
