China's Dali University major attraction for Nepali medical students

Dali, Yunnan, China:  Among many places of China, the Dali prefecture of Yunnan Province has become a major attraction for the medical students of South and Southeast Asia.

Owing to the Dali University’s sound infrastructure and attractive location, students from various nations opt to study at the university. The Nepali students too are no exception as they too are attracted to the University to pursue their medical courses mainly for two major reasons- the university boasts of very good infrastructure to provide medical education and it offers a very affordable fee structure.

The Nepali medical students started to arrive here from the year 2005. During that time, just two students were enrolled here, but now the total number of Nepali medical students has gone up to 175, thanks mainly to its very affordable fee structure, Dali’s favourable weather and its vicinity to South Asia.

Another major attraction of the university is, unlike elsewhere, it provides international students with education in English medium, which makes studying medicine in this Chinese University affordable and its courses easy to grasp for the international students from Nepal, Pakistan, Bangladesh, India and several Southeast Asian nations.

However, for the Nepali students, there is one area of concern: carrying out their internship after completing of their academic years. Owing to their lack of knowledge in Chinese language, also known as the Mandarin, they unequivocally face problems in doing their internship at the two hospitals of the Dali University.

The Vice President of Dali University, who recently addressed a team of South and Southeast Asian journalists, who visited the university, stated that language had posed a difficulty to foreign students to carry out their internship because "we cannot expect the Chinese patients to our hospitals to speak frank English."

The students who want to carry their internship at the Chinese hospitals have to learn Chinese or to opt to carry out their internship at their home, he said. "If the students feel easy with the Chinese language, then the University can help them out in carrying the internship at the Chinese hospitals, the vice president told to The Rising Nepal.

If the foreign students want to feel easy with the Mandarin, then they have to take part in Chinese language classes, which according to some Nepali medical students, adds extra burden on them because "carrying out study in medicines in itself is arduous and time consuming task."

Carrying out the Mandarin classes is an uphill task, both in terms of providing time and fees for the language classes. But specially, the Nepali students upon returning to Nepal after completing the academic courses find it very difficult to do their internship at the Nepali hospitals, said Deepak Pandey, a second year Nepali medical student at the Dali University.

There is another quandary for the Nepali students- not many Nepali hospitals are comfortable in getting these students as interns. Moreover, the students lately have found it difficult in getting good marks in the Nepal Medical Council License examination, necessary for any Nepali medical student to start a career as a medical practitioner.

However, the Nepali Medical Council this year has recognised the medical course offered by the Dali University, which must have brought a huge sigh of relief to about 175 Nepali students.

"We are happy that the NMC has recognised the courses," said Dr. Umesh Yadav, who teaches internal medicines at the Dali University.

According to Dr. Yadav, the courses and infrastructure of this University, which was established in 2001, are excellent in China. If the Nepali students could afford, at some period of their time here to learn the Chinese language, it would be an added advantage to them because it would help them in getting internship facilities at the Chinese hospitals, he added.

Dr. Yadav also added that the fee structure at the Dali is the most affordable one, especially for the students from Nepal.

He also refuted that accusation regarding the inferior medical courses at the university were just rumours created by some weak students. Dali University is good for the Nepali students and students of other South and Southeast Asia who aspire to become a medical practitioner but whose family income is not very huge, he added.

Apart from being a major attraction for the Nepali medical students, the Dali University, which has 30 year long history has some 16,000 full time students and 913 full time teachers, among whom are 119 professors, 290 associate professors and 102 Ph.D. degree holders.

Spread over an area of 380 acres, and situated at China’s very popular tourist, cultural and historical destination, the University has been running 28 Masters’ Degree programmers and eight research institutes, such as the Institute of Pharmaceutical Science and Institute of Cultures of Ethnic Minorities

The Dali University also offers 45 bachelor degree programmes covering 10 disciplines in medical science, economics, law, education, liberal arts, science, engineering, agriculture, management and art.

The University has established close exchange and cooperation networks with four countries of Southeast Asia- Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia and Thailand and as many countries from South Asia, namely, Nepal, India, Pakistan and Bangladesh.

So far, the University has recruited three batches of 287 Vietnam students, six batches of 498 South Asian students since 2002 to date. According to the University’s vice president, the University makes use of high standard educational resources of other institutions and has established close cooperation with 17 universities of South and Southeast nations.
