We opened our doors to 200 medical students, who are part of the Wits Students Surgical Society. The group used our seminar room for a lecture on paediatric surgery over a 2 day period.
According to the attendees, the highlight of this event was the tour of the Hospital, which the students have not stopped talking about even on social media.
Others were very impressed with the state of the art facilities that NMCH boasts and admitted that the visit reinforced their resolve to pursue specialisation in paediatrics!
We value such partnerships as they are an opportunity to nurture relations with various stake-holders, of which medical students are a big part. We look forward to hosting other events of this nature and exposing our hospital to as wide an audience as possible.
