A university and hospital in Kaohsiung in southern Taiwan have signed deals with Indonesia and Vietnam to help boost the quality of international medical care via an exchange of students for voluntary placement in each country.

Wenzao Ursuline University of Languages and Siaogang Hospital signed Memoranda of Understanding, which aim to boost cooperation between industry and academics as well as promote better health services.

This is happening during a time when demographics are getting more diversified because transnational marriages have become more common in the country, the Taiwan Times reported.

More than 20 students from Taiwan and international students from Indonesia and Vietnam have been looking forward to serving at the medical institute, where they can utilize their language skills – translating and interpreting – to provide better administrative support and promote public health awareness.

Indonesian student Melisa spoke at a meeting with reporters, saying she had served as a volunteer at Kaohsiung Veterans General Hospital for six months and gained a lot of experience, as well as making new compatriot friends in Taiwan.

David, who was appointed as an English interpreter in Siaogang Hospital, said he had been well looked after by doctors and nurses when he was ill as a child. So, he had hoped to offer service to assist patients as a way of expressing his gratitude.
