AACC Review

This trip has been extraordinary for me. It provided me with a such a rare opportunity to explore the healthcare field and learn more about the Chinese culture. I was able to go into a hospital and shadow multiple different doctors in different departments. Each one provided me with great memories that I would take for my studies. I was also able to witness a surgical procedure in an actual surgical room which was something that I have never done nor imagined myself doing at my current time in life. Not only was I able to learn more about medicine, I was also able to learn more about China. From taichi classes to visiting important sites, I was able to fully immerse myself in the culture. Overall, AACC has provided me with a great experience to study more about health and a different culture.

Greates Pre-Med experience of my life!

This program has had one of the greatest impacts on my pre-med journey so far and is definitely the greatest experience I have had. The entire staff is very hospitable, welcoming and loving and really treats you like family. As for program details, you get to experience how the healthcare system in China works as well as experience all the wonderful cultural aspects of the country! We were in Guangzhou, China and got to see the Canton tower, Dafushan Forest Park, and experience the fantastic Canton cuisine. The food was one of the best parts! I got to shadow in various departments like surgery, cardiology, emergency medicine, pathology and even Chinese traditional medicine! This experience will definitely help me to become a more well-rounded doctor and has made me a more culturally experienced person. Don’t miss out on an opportunity like this one!
