Students raise funds for Project Songkeum
On 4 September 2017, LKCMedicine students who participated in the Project Songkeum OCIP held a fundraising event at CSB. Through the sale of Cambodian-made elephant pants at $10 each, the students successfully raised $460, which will be donated to the Build Your Future Today Foundation, a Cambodian non-governmental organisation committed to improving the quality of life, education and healthcare for the people residing in the villages of Siem Riep. For the third year running, students involved in Project Songkeum made their yearly trip to the villages of Siem Reap earlier in July and interacted with the villagers and children, bringing much joy to the community.
Imperial students visit LKCMedicine for an exchange programme
From 4 to 8 September 2017, ten Imperial Year 2 medical students spent a week at LKCMedicine as part of the Imperial-LKCMedicine student exchange programme. LKCMedicine Year 2 students visited Imperial earlier this year. During the first two days of the visit, the Imperial students were engaged in a spectrum of learning activities, including science practical and clinical methods sessions, and a TBL lesson with their LKCMedicine Year 2 counterparts. The subsequent three days saw them paired with Year 3 students to observe clinical teaching during students’ clinical postings at TTSH. The Imperial students also enjoyed the sights and sounds of Singapore as the LKCMedicine students showed them landmarks including Gardens by the Bay, Art Science Museum, Clarke Quay and Chinatown. Their visit, which ends today, concluded with a lunch with LKCMedicine faculty at the HQ staff lounge, followed by a debrief with Vice-Dean for Education Prof Naomi Low-Beer.

Students, in their TBL teams, bonded over games, winning movie vouchers and snack hampers. Year 3 to 5 students did not miss out on the celebrations either as they were treated to childhood snacks at the student lounge.
