The Feros Medical students of 2016 recently returned to tell us about their experiences overseas. Every year, outstanding UQ medical students are selected through a vigorous application and interview process for the Feros medical scholarship. The scholarship provides them with travel and donation funds to complete their medical placementsin a developing country.
As always, their stories were incredible. Not only did the students appreciate the extra experience they got by completing their placements in a hospital in a developing country, but being able to donate much needed medical supplies to the hospital allowed them to really make a difference and leave a lasting impression. Its a rewarding opportunity for the students and a great way for Toowoong Rotary to share its rotary values.
