Sound medical training requires – in addition to the high academic standards – vast exposure to a wide variety of situations. This summer, medical Students from King Al Faisal University-Saudi Arabia were in Winnipeg to gain additional exposure to a wide array of disciplines. The students participated in the Advanced Training in Basic and Clinical Research Topics in Medicine Program at St. Boniface Hospital Research. The program offers intense practical exposure to various pre-clinical experimental techniques and methods. As well, the students were engaged in various aspects of medical ethics, medical regulations and clinical research.
One of the aims of the program is to expose students to the high ethical and scientific standards of Canada and Manitoba. In addition, the students were exposed to many cultural Canadian/Manitoban experiences that served to enhance their background understanding of the world, including sporting events (Goldeyes, Bombers), and cultural events e.g. Folklorama.
