Dr TAN is from Beijing in China where he works in the respiratory department at the Hunan Provincial People’s Hospital.
His medical expertise & skills are based in mechanical ventilation, fiberbrochoscope, and interventional pulmonology.
Observership has provided Dr TAN with the opportunity to understand first-hand how healthcare systems operate in China & the UK.
Through participation in the clinical attachment programme Dr TAN has observed several areas where different clinical approaches are undertaken such as the doctor & patient relationship and GP training which was felt to be very strong in the UK.
The programme was considered to be very beneficial for personal development, meeting new colleagues and providing exposure to the wider healthcare & social systems based on practical and classroom based learning and weekly lectures, all contributing to important life training!
