    Fudan University MBBS 2010

    Advertisements



    Hello everyone, as with the 2009 thread, this is for anyone who might be interested in coming to Fudan in 2010. There are a few of us from the 2008 and 2009 classes on the forum, and might be able to be of assistance if you have any questions that the admissions office might not know (or if you want a personal view).

    Dear Conway,

    In 2009 thread,you said that we are allowed to double major in TCM through Shanghai University of TCM.How many years does it take in total for the double major? Can you show me the related website of the double major that you mentioned?

    Conway,

    I am thinking about applying to the MBBS for the 2010 and I do have a couple of questions.

    1. I have actually called the international office at Fudan and asked about the MBBS program but the guy told me that the admission requirements will be changed as posted on the website. Is this something that you are aware of? Do you actually know what the new requirements will be?

    2. It said that TOEFL scores are required for people from a non English speaking country. I grew up in Taiwan but went to the US for high school and college and I do have US citizenship. Am I still required to take the TOEFL? Is "a non English speaking country" based on citizenship or country of residence?

    3. It also said that a notarized form of my high school diploma and transcript is required. What kind of notarization would be acceptable?

    4. How is the outlook for medicine in Shanghai considering China as a developing country? Would it be difficult to find a hospital to work for, or specifically as a MBBS graduate?

    Thank you and I look forward to your reply.

    Hello Daniel,

    1. I'm not aware about the changing admissions requirements; I'm not too sure what will be changed in terms of admissions requirements...I guess all we can do at this point is to keep an eye on their website, and see if requirements are changed...

    2. I think for TOEFL requirements, it is dependent on where you completed education, and perhaps citizenship (I'm not 100% sure). There is someone in our class who has US citizenship but grew up in Taiwan, and she didn't have to take the TOEFL to be admitted.

    3. I think a "notarization" is basically any signature or stamp from the school or entity issuing the transcript. I did have those that had to be copies (like my undergraduate diploma and graduation diploma) notarized at a bank. It varies from state to state, but in my state (New York), I just had it notarized at a bank. It should be a free service, regardless if you're a customer there or not.

    4. I don't think it would be difficult to find a job as a foreigner here, especially if you're bilingual in Chinese and English. However, the amount of pay is another issue, since local wages are pretty low, and if you work for a local hospital, the pay is likely to be low, unless you work specifically in a "VIP" or Foreign Floor of a hospital. Then, the pay is significantly higher. From what I've heard from a current surgeon, she said that pay is increasing at a really fast rate in Shanghai, but it is significantly lower in smaller cities inland. I don't know specifically as an MBBS graduate, what our prospects would be, since we are the first cohort (2008), but from what we've "heard", our prospects are very bright, being fluent in English and also graduating from Fudan. But to be honest, we won't know 100% sure until we are actually in that situation.

    Supergoh,

    Regarding the TCM double major, it takes three years, and classes are offered either in the evening or during the weekend. It includes internships and observerships, but again, I emphasize - it is taught in Chinese.

    There is a website in Chinese (through the Shanghai Southwest University Consortium) that lays out the requirements of the double major. There are two majors available:

    Applied TCM:
    ????????????

    Acupuncture and Tuina:
    ????????????

    From what I've heard, after completing either of the above double majors, the graduate is allowed to take the related licensing exam (for China)...I'm not too sure if they're recognized elsewhere, since the number of contact hours are significantly lower than those whose primary major is TCM.

    Thanks.Conway.I have downloaded the FAQ. It seems that TCM offered is more like a minor than a major.This year, only one Fudan medical student applied for Applied TCM.

    I don't prefer TCM because it can hardly be said that TCM is based on scientific theories. It is more likely the collection of experiences and skills accumulated through repeated observation and practices over 4,000 yrs. Practically these experiential skills and explanations are correct and treatments are moderate and probably more hurtless to human dobies because TCM essentially tries to restore the inner balance that underlies normal physical functions rather than kill the pathogen and/or wipe out disfunctional tissues by enforced chemicals and/or mechanical abscissions.

    Thanks for this thread!

    May I just know what it's like to be studying there? For instance, do you guys have orientation during the first year to get to know each other better? And do you guys bond - like going out together as classmates?

    Also, do you live off campus or do you live in the dorm? How and when do you apply? Do you know how much it costs if you're to live off campus?

    Are there any extracurricular activities and associations to join at Fudan?

    Thanks for the help! (:
