As a part of providing hands on training for students at Texila American University, the management of Texila organized an Elderly Home Visit for the Doctor of Medicine (MD1) students on 17th October 2017.

The class was divided in tow groups. The first group visited St. Thomas More Men’s Homestead which is located in Kitty, Georgetown, East Coast Demerara. Dr. Hemchand Jhagru, Emergency Medicine Consultant from Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation (GPHC) accompanied the first group of students. The second group of students visited Missionaries of Charity Elderly Home which is located in Lot 16 Public Road, East Bank Demerara.

The students were briefed about how to start from building rapport, getting the personal data and the aging process, the challenges that they encounter, the memories that they had, how they feel about their current situation and more.

World Teachers Day

There is a famous proverb that says:

“Teaching is a profession that creates all other Professions”

World Teachers Day

World Teachers’ Day held annually on 5 October, is an initiative by UNESCO, a day devoted to appreciating, assessing, and improving the educators of the world. The real point is to provide a time to look at and address issues pertaining to teachers.

Teachers’ Day aims to raise awareness of the importance of the role played by teachers all over the world. The responsibility for educating future generations is not a light one by any means, so show your support for these dedicated and important people not just on Teachers’ Day, but throughout the whole year.

Teachers are producing global citizens, so they are global teachers, who need to situate their advances on a global level. WTD is an opportunity to rethink national issues faced by teachers from an international perspective, to benchmark progress made by national teachers in a global context. UNESCO provides the best global context to address and exchange ideas across borders.

According to Education International, over 100 countries observe World Teachers’ Day and there are 401 member organisations who have contributed to this event.

Texila American University takes this opportunity to thank all the people who are part of this noble profession and who are the cause of producing good citizens to the country. We are also happy and proud of the students who are teachers in and around the world.

Choosing your career path………

There are two important decisions a man has to take in his life, There are two important decisions a man has to take in his life,

  • The first one is to decide on his career
  • The second is to choose an appropriate life partner

It is very important to choose the appropriate career because many a time it is the career which stays longer with the person than the life partner.

However, choosing a career is very challenging and it is influenced by many factors. It is quite common for a son or a daughter to choose the same profession of their parents, where as some choose their career based on their innate skills, these are very small percentage of individuals like Usain Bolt, Michael Jordan, Manny Pacquiao and Sachin Tendulkar.

Many others chose a career for its prestige, the remuneration and satisfaction. If you have not chosen your career path yet, then this article might be for you.

The Harris Poll Survey (2015) finds that DOCTORS top the list of Most Prestigious Occupations with an average base salary as $ 222,000. The LinkedIn data reveals the most promising jobs in USA are the DOCTORS.

However, becoming a medical student can be a daunting prospect and one will have to worker harder than the students of other profession. Once you have decided to become a doctor, the next imminent question is how easy it is to get an admission into a quality medical school.

Countries worldwide have their own eligibility criteria to enroll and train students. Some countries like in India it is extremely difficult to get admission, approximately 1.15 million (2017) compete for a mere 63,000 seats and it is almost impossible to get admission into a medical school. It remains to be a distant dream if one does not have money or if he is not a top ranker in the country, so they choose to travel to the east or western countries for medical education depending on their financial status.

Challenges in Studying Medicine in the East and West

The main challenges in countries like China and Russia are the languages secondly the difficulty in having hands on training and thirdly they don’t permit them to practice in their respective countries.

Whereas the challenges in studying in countries like USA and UK are, it is extremely expensive where even their own students will not be able to afford unless and until they are supported by federal loans.

Off late the Caribbean countries are gaining prominence in offering medical education and the fee structure is very affordable and some of the countries like Guyana are purely English speaking nation.
