China is conducting a resident training programme for Guyana, which was just introduced. 24 doctors from Guyana will be taught for 6 months using a mix of online and offline techniques under the supervision of members of China’s 17th medical assistance mission to Guyana and specialists from Changzhou First People’s Hospital in Jiangsu Province.
The doctors can learn pathology, anaesthesia, orthopaedics, obstetrics and gynaecology, and renal disease diagnostic and treatment procedures. Georgetown Hospital had just two pathology physicians when the training programme began, and they could only do standard material collection and cytology puncture. They were unable to make histological diagnoses or produce pathological reports on their own.
Only Chinese medical personnel were capable of completing these duties. The players on the team have completed their tasks. Xie Jun, Deputy Director of the Pathology Department of the 17th Aid Medical Team in Guizhou, vividly recalls the doctor in charge of the department, Nancy, telling him on the first day he reported to the Pathology Department that the department’s histopathological diagnosis had not been made after the previous medical team’s doctors had left. Work was disrupted at one point, and several doctors awaited results with bated breath.
Xie Jun spent two months reviewing the backlog of over 800 pathology slides after landing in Guyana. It is preferable to educate a guy to fish rather than to provide him with a fish. Following the commencement of the training programme, Xie Jun brought his apprentices to the hospital as quickly as possible to help ease the facility’s pathological skill deficit.
The foundation of accurate diagnosis is the sample standard. The first lesson of Xie Jun’s instruction covered the particular needs for material selection, including how to watch, measure, and assess, as well as what approaches to use.
He chose a few abnormal portions from common cases, unusual instances, and sections with incorrect materials to teach local physicians how to discriminate between them, and to continue to improve their diagnostic expertise.
Many learners said that their clinical practice abilities had considerably improved as a result of the training. “Chinese physicians have extensive clinical experience, which has aided us in improving our abilities.” “We are incredibly fortunate to meet Chinese physicians!” the youngsters said.
Guyana’s Health Minister Anthony informed reporters that the training project’s concept was immediately embraced and supported by people from all walks of life in Guyana. “The training offered by Chinese physicians is precisely what Guyana’s doctors need, and it will assist to raise the country’s medical standards.”
According to the Guyana Chronicle, healthcare collaboration is an essential aspect of the amicable relationship between Guyana and China. China has “successfully supported the growth of Guyana’s health cause” for a long time by sending medical teams and conducting study abroad programmes.
The Chinese physicians and Guyana trainees formed a strong bond throughout the training process. “The Chinese physicians are patient and precise in their instruction. They are both instructors and friends to us.” Sandy said, “We intend to study in China in the future so that we may continue to develop our diagnostic and treatment abilities. This is what we all want.”
