Recognizing the strange: experience of the ESTS-AME clinical fellowship in Beijing and Guangzhou
During the ESTS postgraduate master course 2016 in Naples, the 2nd ESTS-AME prize was awarded for the best overall performance by a trainee member. I was lucky enough to win this prize and was faced with this one month experience of thoracic surgery in China. During three weeks, I was involved in the daily routine of the Thoracic Surgery Department at the Cancer Hospital Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences in Beijing (Figure 1). One week was spent at the Thoracic Surgery Department of the 1st Affiliated Hospital Guangzhou Medical University (Figure 2).
