ACAP Mid-Atlantic Chapter activity on 5/31/14      Posted June 9, 2014


成医之路

 

    美国华人医师协会(Association of Chinese American Physicians, Mid-Atlantic ChapterACAP)于五月三十一日下午,在美京华人活动中心(CCACC)CCACC的音乐大厅裡,举行了「成医之路」大型医疗教育和培训活动, 取得圆满成功。美国华人医师协会十一名华府精英医师,从高深的医学学府裡走进华人社区,向年轻一代和家长们展示他们熟知的医疗世界,并解答大家的疑惑。在长达五个半小时的活动时间裡,医师们以一贯的高效率,井然有序地完成了三项培训工作。

 

    第一部分,面向有志于就读医学院的大学生们,以圆桌会议的形式,由美国华人医师协会主席,眼底病专家锺耀辉医师、 NIH的感染病专家刘春燕医师、医学教育专家Dobbin Chow 医师、内科专家崔巍医师及Howard 大学医学院三年级的Tuo Dong同学,畅谈自己职业选择的感悟,并一一回答对家长和大学生的提问。

 

    第二部分裡,美国内科学会马里兰分部主席(Governor, American College of Physicians, Maryland ChapterDobbin Chow医师热心地做了长达90分钟的报告,从招生主任的角度详尽地介绍了美国住院医师的申请过程。Dr. Chow1991年起,一直在约翰霍普金斯大学医学院附属的Sinai医院和Good Samaritan医院做内科住院医师的Program Director,是着名的医学教育专家。他在报告结束之后,继续用两个小时的时间来解答学生的各种问题。

 

    压轴的是住院医师面试培训。来自NIH、约翰霍普金斯医院和Shady Grove医院的10名主治医师分别培训了25名即将在明年竞争美国住院医师职位的华人准医师。他们对每一个申请人耐心地讲解面试要点、进行模拟面试、给出反馈意见、提供加强面试技巧的建议。参加培训的25名准医师既有美国医学院在读学生,也有中国医学院毕业生;有人来自加拿大的蒙特利尔,还有几位来自北京、上海和广州的年轻医学生。他们以优异的USMLE医学成绩、出色的美国实习经历、和熟练的英文交流技巧,令人刮目相看。在大陆医患关係极为恶劣的今天,他们能够逆流而上,不远万里来到医疗领先的美国,追求自己的梦想,其对医学的热忱和执着,令人感动。

 

    策划和组织此次活动的崔巍医师,向接受培训的医师们提出殷切期望:服务华人社区是华人医生义不容辞的责任。希望在不久的将来,有更多优秀的华人医生加入行列,为提高华人社区的健康共同努力。

 

    合办单位CCACC除了免费提供场地,事前还做了大量的准备工作,使得活动能够顺利完成。周武屏医师和李家裘医师大力扶助,周医师还在百忙之中亲自到场。提供跨国医疗服务的「华美医道」医疗谘询公司总裁田健民医师和副总裁沈雯医师也亲自出马,给予赞助。另外,三位即将进入住院医师培训的准医师全力帮忙,显示了他们未来的实力。特此鸣谢!为了这样的活动能够长期坚持下去,我们鼓励参加活动的听众和社区向ACAP捐赠,支持自己社区的医疗教育事业。
