Two medical students from Université Laval, a public research university in Canada, recently visited the Shrimad Rajchandra Hospital for a two month internship and inter-cultural programme.
Zola, one of the intern’s shares “For our internship programme, we could choose from over 30 hospitals in various countries and there is always a lot of people wanting to opt for Shrimad Rajchandra Hospital, Dharampur. The amalgamation of selfless community service and modern healthcare infrastructure is what truly attracted me towards this hospital. Going for the outreach programme was one of the highlights, and interacting with the villagers and getting a sense of the culture was an experience in its own. Every person I have interacted with here at the hospital has added a sense of purpose to my career and life”.
Thalyssia Duflot, the other intern shares, “This experience has certainly made me a lot humbler. The community spirit and the impact of the Mission’s charitable initiatives are nothing short of amazing. An initiative that I really admired was the one-of-its-kind Early Intervention Centre, where every child had a unique story. Interacting with them on a daily basis built a sense of belonging. I certainly intend to set up a community care centre in Canada inspired by the work I have seen here!”
With such international internship programmes, Shrimad Rajchandra Hospital continues to evolve into a global centre of learning, as well as a hub for offering selfless service.
