Who Are These 2017 China INMED Course Grads?

October 20th, 2017 by Nicholas Comninellis

 

For the second year, INMED offered the International Medicine & Public Health Hybrid Course in Shenyang – a relatively small city of 6 million in far NE China. Among our intriguing graduates are:

 

Grace Liu Xiaoping, back row far left, a family physician in the resort city of Hangzhou, impressed us with her warm social character, near perfect tropical medicine exam performance, and volunteer service in both Cambodia and Egypt. No “foreigner” to self-sacrifice, Grace is intentional about expressing her vibrant personal faith through applying her talents to benefit the poor beyond China’s expansive borders.

 

Melchizedek Gyamfi, back row second from the right, is a Ghanaian medical student studying in China. Like Grace, Melchizedek stood out from among his peers by composing essays expressing remarkable insight onto convoluted international health issues. We have been told that Chicago has more residency-trained Ghanaian physicians than all of Ghana. But Melchizedek won’t be contributing to that statistic. Look for him in Ghana next year, completing his INMED Service-Learning experience while caring for his own countrymen.
