Angieszka from Poland (pre-medical student):
My pre-medical internship in Tangier was a great experience. I would especially like to thank the nurse anesthetists and the Director of the clinic who were very kind to me and had a great sense of humor. Through their pedagogical approach I had the opportunity to gain lots of interesting learning experiences. Many of the doctors have studied in France and generally speaking, I got along very well with all of the staff at the clinic. They were always there to answer my questions.
Furthermore, I really liked the fact that I was able to rotate through various departments of the clinic. I shadowed the doctors and nurses in the surgery theatre as well as in the maternity ward, which allowed me to see things that I had never witnessed before, such as a caesarean section or circumcision, just to name a few. Overall, I highly recommend this placement to all future students of nursing or medicine and I hope to return to Morocco for my elective placement one day.
Finally, I would like to thank my local coordinators for providing me with lots of information prior to my arrival to Tangier, which I found very useful. I was very grateful for the support that I got on-site, including a very good introduction to the city of Tangier as well as to my placement. The local team was always there to answer any of my questions and I generally feel that they did a very good job as coordinators.
Thank you once again!
