On January 4th, St. Luke Society Korea held an orientation for the 2nd medical dreamer for high-school students in Seoul, Korea. The orientation took place at the lecture hall of the Seoul National University Of Dentistry Hospital. On this day, a total of 90 people participated including parents.
Especially this year, the second generation from Olivet Teen Mission with interest in the medical field, also joined the orientation and learned about the program. The orientation began with a short video clip of the last year’s orientation, followed by an introduction of the mentors and assistant mentors. This included a short sharing of their testimony as to why they decided to become medical professionals. Additionally, the overall schedule and the topics of the mentoring program was introduced, together with the schedule for the hospital visit and its activities in which students can participate.
Furthermore, the benefits that students can receive from the program were explained, as well as rules for participating in the program. Afterward, the orientation concluded by introducing staff and the activities of SLS, such as short-term overseas medical mission, ‘Healing Hands’, and leadership seminars.
One of the participating students shared, “I joined the orientation not knowing what to expect, but I found it to be more professional than I thought it would, and I think it’s going to be a good experience for me. Especially, I’m looking forward to the time where I can learn about the lifestyle of nurses.”
Another student shared, “This kind of opportunity is rare and I’m hoping that I can confirm my dream through this program. Also, as one of the mentor doctors mentioned, I wish I could be a doctor who cannot only bring the physical healing but also the inner healing. I’m looking forward to the 1 on 1 mentoring out of all the programs prepared.”
