Two medical students from University of Fiji, Umanand Prasad School of Medicine (UPSM) have received clinical placements at various hospitals and medical centres in Australia.

The duo, Keshni Lata and Shoma Dutt, year five Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery (MBBS) students yesterday departed for their medical adventure after being selected by Friends 4 Fiji on a fully sponsored trip by Monash University. During their 10-day tour, the students are scheduled to attend a global health conference in Newcastle, have a clinical placement at Monash Medical Centre and The Alfred Hospital in Melbourne and also tour Melbourne and surrounding areas, with clinical placement in a rural hospital.

One of the recipients, Ms Lata said she was happy to be selected as this was an opportunity for her to learn and experience medical practice in Australia.

“The opportunity is huge and both of us will learn about new medical equipment and as well as meet and treat different lots of population.

“It will be a broader experience and implementation of my knowledge,” Ms Lata said.

She hoped to return with greater experience and something new.

The recipients thanked the UPSM and Monash University for their interest in developing them on a larger platform.

Vice Chancellor of the University of Fiji Professor Prem Misir said the initiative was one which allowed integration of knowledge at international standards which would help the students a lot.
