Diary of a clerkship: 2nd group of TTU students at St Mary Medical Center, Hobart IN USA 8/2018
While in the other side of the town, the other team of TTU students, after long hours working in the office (interviewing and examining patients), went to unwind in a bar while waiting for pizza. The bartenders asked to check the identification cards in order to verify the legal age if the students ordered alcoholic beverage. Luckily, everybody ordered root beer (which is similar to Xa Xi in Vietnam). Not alcoholic beer here. From left to right, Kiên An, Thục Duyên. Hòa, Nhân, Phước and Dr. Quốc Bùi.
However the US clerkship is not just for partying. The principle is to work hard and to play hard. If there are many pictures of dining, bar hopping or partying, that means the students work very hard during the days and in the evening it is time to unwind.
The main methodology of the Problem Based Learning is intensive interaction and communications between instructors and learners. These sessions satisfy the first goal of the US clerkship is English efficiency. Tomorrow the students will continue the PBL sessions. Again, if the students work hard, they will enjoy more at the bar, at the restaurants or in Chicago for sightseeing during the week-end. Stay tuned.
