Dr. Jieqi Mao from the Department of Vascular Surgery at Shanghai General Hospital received advanced medical training at Vivantes Spandau and Humboldt Hospital in Berlin from March to August 2016. This advanced medical training was organized by Swiss International Health Care. The training program was designed to give the Chinese guest physician an insight into the German healthcare landscape, and the daily program covered medical procedures from visiting the wards to consulting with patients and discussing cases with local physicians. As a focus of the training, for example, special attention was paid to current treatment methods and participation in the operating theater. Here, in addition to enriching medical expertise, other skills can also be trained, such as self-confident appearance, eloquence and creative development.
