A total of 35 students and people from different fields visited Ruijin Hospital and had a close-up look at the work doctors and nurses perform during a one-day medical experience camp.

Most of the visitors were students, some of whose parents are medical professionals. They visited laboratories, operating theaters and wards and talked with doctors, nurses and patients. Leading doctors gave lectures on their work and thoughts about medicine.

Some high school students said they will choose medicine as their future major in university and become doctors after having experienced their day in the hospital.

Wu Yifan, who is studying at Lillian Osborne High School in Canada, said the experience has further strengthened her ambition to become a doctor.

Dr Qu Jieming, president of Ruijin Hospital, said the camp has become a regular program every summer in order to show the "intelligence and love" of medical professionals to young people and students.

“Medicine uses weapons like science and technology to fight diseases, but the inner core of medicine is very soft, which is from the deep heart of medical professionals," he said. "By opening the mysterious doors of the hospital, we want to receive more understanding and love from patients and encourage more young people and students to learn medicine."
