‘Studying in the UK has been eye-opening. The people here have been absolutely welcoming and I feel that it will put me in a good position to start off my life as a doctor’ – Shawn Loh
In our film, we spoke with Dr John Chan Kok Meng, who received his medical training and qualifications in the UK, and was also awarded with a scholarship from the British High Commission. Dr John is a cardiothoracic surgeon at CVSKL, and attests to the benefits of being educated in the UK.
Dr John shares words of encouragement with Shawn Loh, who has just begun her surgical career. Shawn is studying medicine at St. George’s University of London and is undertaking a work placement at a hospital in the seaside town of Torbay. Dr John and Shawn share big dreams of making a valuable contribution within their community, as they hope to improve the quality of life for many people in Malaysia.
