A group of 20 BCM students and teachers went on a service learning tour to Qinghai from 1 to 11 July. The group visited Xining Social Welfare Institute, Xining Children Welfare Hospital and Qinghai Welfare Hospital, where they examined elderly and underprivileged patients suffering from bone and joint diseases as well as young patients with cerebral palsy and provide medical advice to them under teachers’ guidance. Launched to great acclaim in 2015, this learning tour has since become an annual activity to provide students with valuable opportunities for experiential learning and inculcate in them a caring spirit as well as a sense of social responsibility.
