Jiangxi orthopaedic service learning tour

12 November 2018


The orthopaedic curriculum of SCM offers plenty of experiential learning opportunities for students to put theory into practice in the most impactful way.  With funding support from the Centre for Innovative Service-Learning, students and teachers of the Orthopaedics & Traumatology course went on a service-learning tour to Jiangxi Province from 8 to 11 November 2018.  During the four-day trip, the group provided lectures on the management of bone and joint diseases and free medical consultation to more than 200 elderly locals in Nanchang and Lushan.
