On July 27, 2023, we congratulated medical exchange students from France, Poland, Slovenia, Indonesia, Belgium, Canada, Hungary, Austria, and Japan on completion of their exchange program with us. The program ran during July 2023.
On their graduation day, all exchange students made end-of-program presentations to share their elective experiences. On this occasion Assoc. Prof. Supinda Koonmee, MD and Asst. Prof. Sakkarn Sangkhamanon, MD, Department of Pathology and Prof. John F Smith, English Specialist attended to listen to their presentations.
During their presentations, all reported being impressed with their KKU experience, such as convenient campus facilities, friendly people, useful practical training, and kind faculty staff. Here are some of their shared experiences:
“It’s big university with a lot of sports area, and the Thai students are very kind to us,” said a French student.
“I’m very thankful to all staff, residents and nurses who took their time to explain and teach me,” said a Slovenian student.
“I found very friendly, polite and helpful people that make my exchange program a great experience,” said a Polish student.
“The staff and residents in Srinagarind Hospital are one of the best mentors I’ve ever had throughout my practical training, so I’d like to thank you all for their kindness and constant willingness to respond to all of my questions, and I’m grateful for having the opportunity to learn from them,” said a Slovenian student.
We congratulated all of them on their achievement. We were so pleased to be part of their successful time and glad to have them in our faculty in Khon Kaen, Thailand.
