I had a pleasure of being on a summer students’ exchange with IFMSA’s SCOPE Programme in Århus  in July 2016. It was an extraordinary and unforgettable experience both profesionally and personally.

I was lucky to be a guest of an incredible team of doctors, nurses and midwives at the gynaecology and obstetrics department in Århus University Hospital. I observed but also took part in their everyday work at the department. Everyone – from doctors to nurses and non-medical staff – has been very helpful and supportive.

I’ve been given a chance to learn both theoretical knowledge and practical skills. Every day the morning conferences have been held in english so that I’ve been able to have an insight into the doctors’ work and patients’ histories and cases.

Time spent at the hospital has been unforgettable and so have been afternoons, evenings and weekends spent with other exchange students! We explored Århus which is a beautiful and lively city. We’ve become inseparable and I’ve enjoyed the time tremendously!

I also admire the way the local Danish students hosted us for the social weekends: in Århus and in Odense. There was time for sightseeing, for integration and for fun. One of the best moments was canoeing during Århus Social Weekend. We had incredible fun! Thanks to that so many friendships have been made and I truly hope they’re going to last forever!

Apart from the social weekends I’ve visited Copenhagen twice and the second time was during our last weekend in Denmark. We’ve got on so well with all the incomings in Denmark that we’ve decided we want to spent that weekend together.

All in all I feel I’ve had the time of my life in Denmark! J I feel it’s been very profitable from the professional point of view since I’ve be at the department I want to work at in the future. But most of all I’ve met so many wonderful people with whom I still keep in touch! I would love to return to Århus , Copenhagen and Denmark in overall some day!

Anna Z.. er tydeligvis taknemmelig for, at også det sociale aspekt ved udvekslingen fungerede så godt, med mange nye venskaber på kontoen. Det er dejligt at se, at IMCC´s værdier for et socialt fællesskab, der skal være åbent og inkluderende, fungerer så godt i praksis. Dermed sender vi en stor ros til alle frivillige der har været med til at skabe disse positive rammer for Annas udvekslingsophold. Vi er sikre på at Anna slet ikke kan skjule sin begejstring, når hun vender hjem til sine medstuderende i Polen.
