Here his feedback:
"In summer 2015 I was given a great opportunity and honor to spend 6 weeks as a medical student trainee at the Center for Septic Surgery of the Center for Musculoskeletal Surgery (CMSC) at the Charité - University Medicine Berlin, where I had the privilege of working with and being mentored by an exceptional interdisciplinary team of orthopedic surgeons and infectious diseases specialists.
First and foremost I would like to thank PD Dr.med. Andrej Trampuz, Head of Center for Septic surgery at CMSC for this extraordinary opportunity. I would also like to thank all other physicians, nurses and the rest of staff at the Center for Septic Surgery for accepting me as a member of their team, as well as for helping and guiding me at every step of the way.
During my short stay I was able to broaden my knowledge in the field of septic surgery and prosthetic joint infections. I was taught about the importance of accurate timing and the proper planning of antibiotic treatment, as well as different types of surgical procedures. I was able to improve some of my surgical skills and witness various surgical procedures.
I was involved in routine medical procedures, bedside surgical interventions, attended morning rounds, daily patient visits, and the orthopedic and traumatology outpatient clinic. I also participated at clinical case discussions, morbidity and mortality conferences.
Additionally, I was also able to observe ongoing research projects, including sonication, microcalorimetry, molecular assays, and in vitro testing of new antimicrobial substances.
It was altogether an amazing learning experience with all the team members being very friendly, patient and highly motivated to teach."
