Students are generally required to meet at their respective departments at approximately 0730 hours. Students will be expected to participate during their scheduled work time in accordance with the tasks indicated on their schedules.
In addition, students are expected to attend and actively participate in morning conferences periodically as part of their set schedule. This will give them an opportunity to learn more about differences and similarities in choices of treatment, regimes, and general medical objectives. We hope to broaden the students' knowledge regarding the diseases that might be common in Southeast Asia, but rare in their home country.
During working hours, we ensure that they will have the opportunity to participate or observe a variety of procedures specific to the department(s) they are attending. The Program for Overseas Students has been designed to most benefit individual students' needs. Students will be provided with a complete description of the goals they wish to achieve and actual outcomes. In addition, foreign students at PSU are encouraged to spend time independently learning about patient care practice with Thai medical students and residents.
Supervisors will be assigned from the relevant departments to specifically look after and monitor students. In particular, the supervisors will ensure that students adhere to the set program and achieve their desired goals.
