    I'm a 6th year MBBS student at Fudan, ask me anything!

    I'm currently in my internship year. I haven't been on this forum in a long time and realize that information on here may be out of date.

    Ask me anything about the program, life in Shanghai, etc. I'll wait till there are a bunch of questions, compile them into a list, and answer them point by point. I'll try my best to get other current students to answer some questions as well.

    Hello, I am struggling between choosing to apply at Zhejiang medical university or Fudan university? I am an American student and was wondering if anyone could Gove me any tips in terms of which school has better USMLE results/training? I understand that one must put in a lot of work but also helps if the school is teaching you the right things. overall which school you would recommend for getting a job in the US after graduation? any insight greatly appreciated!

    Hey,
    So this is an interesting question. I stand corrected but none of the medical schools in China prepare you for USMLE. If you want to prepare for USMLE, you will have to use the recommended USMLE books along with whatever lecture handouts you get from your lecturers. I cannot comments on Sudan but in ZJU, quite a number of people write the USMLE, though 50 to 75% have no intention of moving to the States. They just write to test their medical knowledge (Well, that is what some have told me anyway when i asked them why they write it?) I, for one have no intention of writing it as I am a PLAB guy (from UK).
    Again, I cannot not comment about Fudan teaching but in ZJU, some are good, some are OK, some are terrible. The terrible ones, you just have to resort to videos and other reading materials in order to understand the subject material. Videos are abundant on ZJU campus, senior students will just pass them to you if you want them, all you just have to do it set a time to go through them along with your lecture handouts cos as much as some lectures might be bad, your final exams will come from those materials. I also want to point out that in ZJU you can tailor the time you want to write the USMLE with the curriculum. At the end of 4th yea first semester, we have pre-clinical exams, which encompasses everything from first year to fourth year, so you will have to review all the anatomy and biochemistry and histology stuffs all through to Internal medicine. Thus, some students in ZJU immediately after writing the school's preclinical exams take the USMLE because all those review materials would still be fresh and they wouldn't have to redo them all over again.
    In terms of getting job, the only US guy I have met is in my batch so I cannot comment on that. However, a number of people have been able to move to UK after completing their studies in ZJU and are working following clearing the PLAB.
    All the best in whatever you decide on.

    Cheers

    Hey I am thinking of applying to a mbbs program in China this year 2018. I am from New Zealand.
    I am currently finishing Bsc in Bio Medical science in New Zealand. I am leaning towards Fudan and Zhejiang.
    The issue is my final exams are in November.
    I wonít be available to start until end of November incase I get accepted.
    Is there a way around this, rather than waiting for whole another year?
    Given I have already covered most of the 1st and 2nd year curriculum already in my current studies, is there a possibility I could start bit late say end of November 2018?
    BTW if anyone know any New Zealanders or Australians studying mbbs in China?

    Thanks in advance


    Looking forward to hear from you.

    Yes, there are international students from UK, which I am one. Got two more in my class anyway.

    Yes, China is safe for international students. Been here over 2 years; haven't been in any trouble. Follow rules and regulations of the country and you will be just fine.

    Feel free to check my blog where u will find more information about my university.

    Not too sure about valuemd policies for posting Web address, hence the reason why I posted it that way.

    Hey,
    From your question, I highly doubt its possible. The school will insist you come and register during the stipulated time. Now, I am talking from Zhejiang perspective. You can only miss the first 2 weeks for every semester. Afterwards, the university will just dismiss you unless you give them a tangible reason. Now in your case, finishing your exams during the end of November will be a no go zone for Zhejiang university because during November is when you have all your midterms and Calculus I final exams, and you will definitely be missing those exams, technically going against you in the final credits at the end the semester. Now Zhejiang university has a rule, if you fail to get more than 12 credits for 2 successive semesters, you are out of the university.
    I am afraid most Chinese medical universities do not really take into consideration your previous higher education like prior Bachelors or Master degree, thus, telling the university that you have covered most of the curriculum would not change their stand. There is absolutely no way other than starting in 2019, however, feel free to pop the university an email. Maybe, just maybe, you might get lucky, you never know.
    Yes, there are New Zealanders/Australians in ZJU, there is one in 4th year now. I have got one New Zealander in my batch along with one Australian. It's better when you are in the university, that is when they will connect. They do not really pop around here to the best of my knowledge.
    Just a word of advice, do not get dishearten cos you might start in 2019. Just try to get some hospital/general work experience after your bachelors. Do fun things, probably go travelling. You can even come to China and check to see if you really like the country to study here cos trust me, you can be disappointed if you get your hopes high. Some, i know, have been disappointed before and have gone back home.
    The best of luck to you. Cheers.

    Thanks so much Ben.

    I think its makes more sense to apply in 2019. My parents are saying the same thing.
    May be I could come over to do a Chinese language program after my exams (and test the waters as you suggested)
    Irony is Chinese are doing the same thing to get to this part of the world .
    What are the chances of getting a part time job teaching English as a foreign language?
    I am planning to get TEFL qualified before I come.
    I met a SA girl who had been teaching English in China last year while travelling, she didn't have much to say other than the money was good.

    Oh, your chances of getting part time job teaching is good. I, for one, have not been interested in that line of work. It is just not for me plus the fact that I do research part in the Neuroscience Institute along with studying Medicine, so generally, i do not really have the time for teaching.
    But yeah, money is good. I have got one friend in my batch, also from UK, who does it. Truth be told, he is probably the laziest person in the year group in a sense that he does not come for lectures, not even lab works which are strictly important, attendance-wise. He, however, gets people to sign his attendance for him throughout the semester. He actually gets good money. I understand he makes somewhere between 5000 and 10000 yuan per month. But yeah, that is the sacrifice he has to make, skipping lectures for work. Not a fun of it honestly speaking but that is his choice. And after all, he manages to pass every semester so kudos to him.
    So yeah, get your TEFL qualifications and you will be set to go.

    Cheers.

    Hey there,
    Iím planning on applying for Fudan MBBS in 2018. Iím 18 years old and finished from highschool. I got offers from the top 2 unis in New South Wales. Just wondering whether including those in my application would help increase my chances? And would you also have an idea of what they look for in the applicants apart from marks?
    Cheers
