Cooperating with Sun Yat-Sen University, a group of five highly motivated LCWC students embarked on an enriching 10-day summer camp program from July 13 to 22, 2023 at Guangzhou and Ruyuan County. This program offered hands-on experience at Zhongshan Eye Centre and Cancer Center, volunteer teaching at Ruyuan High School, and facilitated exchanges between students from 13 renowned universities from Chinese Mainland, Hong Kong and Macau.
During the first four days, students visited the Sun Yat-Sen University Specimen Exhibition Hall for Human Anatomy, Sun Yat-Sen University Cancer Center and the Zhongshan Ophthalmic Center. Under the careful guidance of experienced professionals, students were given a unique opportunity to explore the medical world. Throughout the program, the students participated in a variety of educational activities including interactive seminars, workshops, and demonstrations. They witnessed the cardiopulmonary resuscitation, observed surgical demonstration, and were introduced to advanced diagnostic tools used in modern medicine. The hands-on experience provided our students with rare insight into the complexities of modern medical procedures.
In addition to the academic component, the summer camp program also included a 6-day volunteer teaching at Ruyuan County, aimed at providing educational support to high school students at Ruyuan County.
Led by Resident Fellow Dr. SUN Sisi, the five LCWC student volunteers dedicated their time, talent, and resources to help the students of Ruyuan County to excel academically and gain essential life skills. Over the course of the six-day service learning, together with students from Chinese Mainland, Hong Kong and Macau, the LCWC student volunteers organized interactive workshops, delivered engaging lectures, and conducted sports and painting competitions. These sessions covered a wide range of subjects, including medical science, language, and culture, that aim to enhance the students’ understanding and confidence in these areas.
This program has been a transformative experience for LCWC students, enhancing their knowledge integration skill, leadership skill and service awareness. The memories created and knowledge imparted will undoubtedly shape the future of the Ruyuan County’s students, inspiring them to pay it forward and contribute positively to society in their own unique ways.
