GEI Virtual Internship

I had a great time throughout this internship period. The experience is topnotch, I enjoyed working collaboratively with my colleague and learned a lot from her perspectives and viewpoints. Also, I learned a lot from the entire research process, the process is even more practical than I expected since it was virtual. The guidance and support from the preceptors are tremendous and commendable. The skills and knowledge acquired from this internship will help me grow as a global public health leader.

What was your funniest moment?
The Global Cafe moment was fun to me! It was engaging and interactive.

I have never forgotten the time 4 weeks when I contacted with GEI, Dr. Bao and especially my lovely partner in America - Breanna. I'm just a freshmen in CTUMP and I just start to study many new things in a new environment. The first time when I knew I passed the CV to become a member in Virtual Internship. I felt so happy but I was still a bit worried about whether I could actually complete the program or not. Thanks for everyone supporting me, I was able to do my 4 weeks well. The Virtual Internship has brought me a lot of experience and is an unforgettable turning point in my student life.

What was the most nerve-racking moment and how did you overcome it?
Time to run the program is on the same time as I am about to take the IELTS exam. So sometimes I feel quite pressured because I don't know if I can balance the two or not. But it was those pressures that helped me overcome my limits and be able to deal with both deadlines. While doing the program also helped me learn one thing: "Pressure is diamond" and I can do it

My Internship experience

This has been one of the most engaging and practical internship experiences I have ever had.I totally enjoyed every moment and liked how accessible supervisors have been to support during this journey.One of the key things I have enjoyed has been the fact that I have had to work with someone from a different environment.And this has been worth it as I learnt a lot from working and concepts on a topic that might be helpful as well for my ongoing school project.I end by appreciating those who gave me an opportunity to be a part of this experience.

What was the most nerve-racking moment and how did you overcome it?
I would have enjoyed having more time to give my best as I believe time was not enough for carrying out some of the key components of the research study.

GEI Vietnam

This was a great way to be engaged in global health, virtually! I was unable to do an international rotation in my last year of medical school as I had planned due to the COVID-19 pandemic; however, I learned more than I thought I would about Vietnam in a virtual setting and appreciated the hard work of everyone involved to make this experience as meaningful as possible. It was a once in a lifetime learning experience to collaborate with a student at another university in another country. Would highly recommend!

Clear and impressive

I'm so grateful to join in GEI's activity. It's a great choice for me, I'd learnt many moral lessons, skills which will support me a lots in my future. I had more international friends, new culture and tradition when we talked together, new experiences, new challenges. As a result, I could improve my listening, my speaking and make me more confident. Moreover, when I'd talk with other guys, I talked about my culture, tradition, it's also a chance for me to look back myself , my culture and my country what make me more pround of

If you did this all over again, what's one thing you would change?
Time is limited. Don't waste and enjoy every moment of life!

GEI - DMU - CTMUP

After one-week online course was successfully completed, I would like to express my sincere gratitude to my advisors Ngoc Thuy and Amy for continuous support my study and bring more experience in practical as GEI, CTUMP and Moine University for giving us an extreme opportunity for me to be a part of the team. Not only have I received the help and support of the advisor but also our teammate through this course, I have achieved plenteous worthy experience that lead me to get an overview in the major that I have already chosen in the impending job. To put myself into a more improvement and analyzing the to-do tasks. Besides, I can improve my English skills as well as how to get teamwork more effective and successful.
In addition, my sincere thanks also go to my friends that include Lydia, Sameen, and Thai Duong who helps me a lot from the very first day of period. Thanks for the direct and heartfelt sharing experience in the pass time to help me better understand my problems, give more helpful advice.
Finally, a deep thank to CTUMP and Moine University for bringing this course into the curriculum without this course these experiences of mine would not have been achievable.
As an obstacle I had to surmount before I got into realistic work, I will strive to gain the skills and knowledge in the most effective way, increasingly improve myself to achieve the goals at work. Hope to continue working together in the future.
Best Regard

Virtual Global Health in Vietnam

I wish this could last longer than just 1 week totally. I used to take part in Virtual internship before, we had 4-week working together, such a great experience as we talked and shared a lot about school stuffs. During 4 weeks, we had enough time to understand more about each other also well-prepared for the presentation.
But the thing I love the most is working as a team. We come from different nations, have specific cultures, much more fun things to talk and get to know. It's hard to say goodbye, but we keep in touch until now, thanks, GEI.

What was your funniest moment?
We have an online farewell party, everyone all in costumes related to a famous person, Amy was the only one burn the stage with her costume in pirate. Coincidentally, it was my birthday too, some of them sang me the birthday song, I was so grateful to that, thanks all.
