【英國 Health Science】Shadowing實習的重要性

Shadowing(影子實習)讓學生有機會觀察和參與專業人士日常工作的過程,了解與職業相應的實際操作。在醫療及健康學科中,Shadowing能讓學生深入了解並學習治療師的專業知識和技能,並瞭解他們在不同情境下的思考模式和醫療手法。

Shadowing實習的內容

1. 觀察和參與初步診斷

學生可以觀察治療師如何進行初步診斷,例如收集病史、進行身體檢查和評估病情等。學生可以學習到如何提問病患、注意觀察病徵和徵象,以及如何進行初步診斷。

2. 參與治療過程

在Shadowing期間,學生可以觀察和參與治療過程,學習到治療師如何制定和實施治療,以及如何與病患合作達到治療目標。學生亦可以觀察到治療師使用的技術、設備和工具,並學習到如何進行治療評估和調整治療方案。

3. 學習醫療紀錄和文件管理

Shadowing期間,學生可以學習到醫療紀錄和文件管理的重要性。他們可以觀察治療師如何記錄病歷、治療計劃和治療進展,並了解如何確保醫療文件的準確性和保密性。

4. 跟進病患和評估治療成效

學生可以觀察治療師如何跟進病患的進展和評估治療的成效,包括定期檢查病患的狀態、重新評估治療計劃的有效性,並根據需要調整治療方案。

5. 學習倫理和溝通技巧

學生可以觀察治療師如何與病患和其他醫療團隊成員進行溝通,了解到如何與病患建立良好的醫療關係,尊重病患的私隱和個人價值觀,並有效地溝通和協作。

Shadowing對大學申請的重要性

1. 個人陳述 (Personal Statement)

在個人陳述中,學生可以描述自己的Shadowing經驗,講述自己跟隨治療師的過程以及所學到的知識和技能。這可以展示學生對醫療及健康學科的興趣,以及對從事相關職業的動機。

學生可以談論在Shadowing期間觀察到的病人與治療師之間的互動、對病人的關懷和專業態度,以及如何運用所學知識來解決醫療問題。這樣的描述可以幫助學生展現自己的學習能力、人際交往和專業素養,並突出自己在醫療領域的潛力和貢獻價值。

2. 面試

在面試中,學生可以通過具體的例子和故事來展示他們在Shadowing期間所獲得的經驗和見解。學生可以分享在Shadowing過程中遇到的挑戰,以及如何應對和學習成長。同時,學生還可以表達自己對醫療及健康學科的熱情和對未來職業發展的規劃。這樣的表達可以讓面試官能更好地了解學生的動機和適應能力,並評估他們在這個領域的潛力和適合度。

3. 推薦信

在Shadowing期間,學生有機會與治療師建立良好的關係,並展示自己的學習態度和專業能力。治療師可以在推薦信中提及對學生觀察和描述學生在Shadowing期間的表現。這些推薦信可以提供第三方的觀點,證明學生的學習態度、專業能力和人際交往能力,並對學生在醫療及健康學科中的潛力給予肯定。

【英國寄宿中學】UKiset & CAT4 考試全攻略
英國入學考試是申請英國寄宿學校的第一步,UKiset和CAT4等入學考試則是大家經常聽到的測驗。然而,兩者有什麼分別?學生又是否必需報考這兩個考試?以下是這兩個考試的詳細介紹。 UKiset UKiset (UK Independent Schools’ Entry Test) ,是英國私立寄宿學校專為9至18歲的海外學生而設計的入學測試,主要用來評估申請人的英語水平和學術能力。 目前有過百所英國私立學校將UKiset作為篩選學生 (pre- screening)的首要標準,並作為學生申請英國寄宿學校的第一關。部份寄宿學校甚至會因申請人的UKiset成績優異而直接取錄,豁免入學試 (CAT4)及面試的入學要求。 UKiset是一個約2至2.5小時的電腦測試,成績有效期為一年,主要分為三個部分: 測試 考試內容 限時 Reasoning(推理)  ·       文字邏輯推理·       圖表推理·       數字推理  90分鐘 Cambridge English Test (劍橋英語考試)  ·       閱讀·       聆聽·       英語運用 (詞彙、拼寫及語法)  30分鐘 English Essay Writing (英文寫作)  評估學生的書面英語表達和語文技巧的能力,字數要求根據年齡而有所不同:9-11歲:最少100-150字12-15歲:最少200-250字16-18歲:最少300-350字  30分鐘 UKiset成績計算方式 UKiset與其他考試有所不同,考試題目會根據學生答題的準確度進行調整。舉例,如果學生持續答對題目,後續題目會變得更難,相應地分數也會較高。 UKiset注意事項 CAT4 CAT4(Cognitive Abilities Test)入學試是大部分英國學校的指定入學試,包括寄宿學校、私立學校和部分公立學校,主要針對6至17歲的學生,用於評估學生的認知能力、思考能力和學習潛力。 測試內容主要分為四個範疇:語言測試(Verbal Reasoning)、數學測試(Quantitative Reasoning)、非語言測試(Non-Verbal Reasoning)和空間推理測試(Spatial Reasoning)。題目會以選擇題形式呈現,有關詳細的測試內容可以參考以下資訊: 測試內容 考試內容 限時 語言測試(Verbal Reasoning)   評估語言和文字方面的能力·      詞彙理解·      同義詞·      反義詞·      關聯詞 45分鐘 數學測試(Quantitative Reasoning)  數學和數量推理方面的能力·      數字操作·      數學問題·      數量關係 45分鐘 非語言測試(Non-Verbal Reasoning)  圖像和圖形推理方面的能力·      圖像和圖形推理·      圖形類比、模式識別、空間關係 45分鐘 空間推理測試(Spatial Reasoning)  空間感知和推理方面的能力·      圖像旋轉·      圖像組合·      圖像投影 45分鐘 CAT4注意事項 CAT4模擬試題 語言測試(Verbal Reasoning) 數學測試(Quantitative Reasoning) 非語言測試(Non-Verbal Reasoning) 空間推理測試(Spatial Reasoning) 延伸閱讀: 提升獲牛津、劍橋及G5大學錄取機會的關鍵 香港學生赴英攻讀法律學位指南 【英國 Health Science】實習對申請的重要性
提升獲牛津、劍橋及G5大學錄取機會的關鍵
以下是Oxbridge過往的面試問題,您知道答案嗎? “Why do many animals have stripes?” “Do bankers deserve the pay they receive?”“How important is social interaction in language acquisition?” “Is it ever morally right to kill someone?” 沒有額外的學術課堂加以鍛鍊,一般都很難回答牛劍的面試問題。 要獲得牛津、劍橋及其他英國G5大學的錄取,發展獨特的思維模式至關重要。如果沒有事先接觸這些充滿挑戰性的面試問題,您可能會感到困惑。在這種情況下,Knowledge Building便能派上用場,這種方法能夠加深和擴充與學科相關的知識,為有志之士提供競爭優勢。 Ascent Prep 的 Knowledge Building 三大優勢 1. 訓練學生牛津、劍橋的思維模式 牛劍的面試問題艱深,不會問學生已理解的知識,而是需要學生利用既有知識推敲答案。牛劍重視學生的思路軌跡和思考過程,而並非具體答案。Knowledge Building 所學就是超越中學程度的super-curricular,將會在牛津、劍橋,或是其他G5大學的面試中大派用場。 2. 協助學生選擇合適學科 大學開辦的學科如法律系、物理治療、醫科、工程學等等,大多數學生都未曾在中學階段時有所接觸,因此未必真的了解這些科目到底是學什麼、會否適合自己。 舉例,如果數學成績出眾,應該報讀牛劍的數學系還是物理系呢?Knowledge Building 可協助您深入了解各個學科的知識層面,助您精準確立大學選科目標。 3. 協助學生撰寫深入探討學術議題的Personal Statement 一般學生會在 Personal Statement 解釋為什麼喜歡所選的學科、有什麼過人之處等,但牛劍或其他G5大學不僅僅要求這些,而是期望學生能帶出與學科相關、強烈深入、並具個人見解的學術探討,需要閱讀學術書籍及資料搜集配合完成,而這些正正能從Knowledge Building中,掌握相關主題與學術概念。 Knowledge Building 如何提升面試質素? 以下挑選了兩條過往牛劍的面試問題,由Ascent Prep牛劍背景的導師示範建議答案,以供參考。 Question 1: Do bankers deserve the pay they receive? Suggested Answer Approach: A simple answer might be that since banks are generally private firms and workers are free to work where they wish, then the pay they receive is just the outcome of a competitive labour market. In this story, bankers earn a lot because they are very skilled and have rare talents. It is hard to see a reason for government intervention in this case – though on equity grounds one may want to have a progressive income tax system that redistributes some of this income. Note: A good candidate would wonder why it is that seemingly equivalently talented people can get paid so much more in banking than in other occupations. Do we really […]

Jessie C.
Desire Subject Physiotherapy
Programme Medicine and Allied Health Professions Admissions Preparation Course
Hours Attended 20

From a young age, Jessie was passionate about sports, especially football and competitive jump roping. An injury during a jump roping competition that required physical therapy piqued her interest in the profession. Jessie chose Biology and Chemistry as her subjects, and her predicted DSE scores met the entry requirements. However, she had doubts about her suitability due to her petite stature and introverted nature, fearing these could be obstacles to becoming a physical therapist. Despite Jessie's excellent grades, her father was also concerned about her career choice, worrying that Jessie was blindly following a trend without truly considering her interests and abilities, as choosing this field would mean committing to a career as a physical therapist.

Our education consultant recommended the shadowing program by Ascent Prep, the only official preparation program recognized by AEAS, offering students clinical internship experiences and professional mentorship. Seeing it as an opportunity to resolve her doubts and increase her chances of being admitted to higher-ranking universities, her father enrolled her in the program.

During the shadowing process, she gained in-depth knowledge of a physical therapist's daily duties, including assessing patients, developing treatment plans, and guiding patients through rehabilitation exercises. Though challenging, she found the work meaningful. Throughout this period, Jessie had the opportunity to ask many questions, particularly about her concerns. After completing the shadowing program, her determination to become a physical therapist was strengthened.

When preparing her personal statement, Jessie tried writing it herself but felt it lacked persuasiveness. With her tutor's guidance, she realized many areas needed improvement. The tutor helped her reorganize her experiences volunteering in physical therapy, highlighting her passion and dedication to the field. During interview training, she learned how to showcase her strengths and effectively answer the interviewer's questions. For example, Ascent Prep tutors taught students how to answer common situational questions, such as:

  • What do you think are the basic professional ethics for a physical therapist?
  • How do you view the relationship between physical therapists and their patients?
  • How would you handle conflicts of interest with patients?

Ascent Prep tutors prepared students for these ethical questions and situational challenges to test their problem-solving abilities, such as:

  • How would you deal with a patient unwilling to cooperate with treatment?
  • How would you respond to an emergency during treatment?
  • How do you collaborate with other healthcare professionals?

Ultimately, with Ascent Prep's assistance, Jessie was accepted into the Physical Therapy program at Hong Kong Polytechnic University and also received offers from the University of Nottingham, University of Birmingham, Brunel University, and the University of Salford in the UK. Among these options, she chose the University of Birmingham and was awarded a scholarship for her outstanding performance.

This journey highlights the value of Ascent Prep, offering practical clinical experiences and professional guidance, enabling students to not only improve academically but also to find their direction in their future career paths.

Sophie F.
Desire Subject Architecture
Programme Portfolio Guidance
Hours Attended 10

Sophie is a high school student from Hong Kong who has been passionate about architecture since she was young. She excelled academically and actively participated in various architecture-related activities, such as architectural model competitions and visits. However, as the time for further education approached, Sophie began to feel somewhat lost, due to her very high standards for herself. She knew that to gain admission into architecture programs at prestigious universities like Cambridge or UCL, she needed not only excellent academic grades but also well-rounded abilities and creativity.

By chance, Sophie attended a lecture by Ascent Prep, where the instructors shared their experiences in helping students gain admission to top universities. Ascent Prep introduced her to a mentor who was studying architecture at Cambridge. The mentorship and classes were designed to help students develop a deeper understanding of the subject matter and encouraged Sophie to think critically about the core of architectural studies, enriching her personal statement with diverse elements. In these classes, Sophie learned about architectural history, theory, and design. Her tutor explained complex concepts in an engaging way, making it easy for Sophie to understand.

For instance, during a mock interview, Sophie encountered a challenging question: "What do you think are the professional ethics of an architect?" She had never considered this question before, but with her tutor's guidance, she was able to articulate a well-thought-out answer, boosting her confidence for the actual interview.

The art portfolio is a critical component of university applications, and Sophie's tutor helped her create a portfolio that was both deep and creative. The tutor meticulously guided her through the selection and arrangement of her works, covering her academic research, practical experience, and personal interests. Under the tutor's guidance, Sophie revised her portfolio multiple times, resulting in an impressive collection of work.

Sophie's efforts were rewarded when she was accepted into the Architecture program at the University of Cambridge. Her portfolio showcased her unique understanding of architecture, including a sustainable design proposal that received high praise from her tutor. Moreover, Sophie performed excellently in her university interviews, demonstrating her academic abilities and personal charm.

Sophie's success story is a testament to the effectiveness of the Ascent Prep program, which is dedicated to helping students realize their potential and achieve success in their educational pursuits.

Andy M.
Desire Subject AEAS
Programme Official AEAS Test Preparation Course
Hours Attended 30

Andy attended a local Hong Kong secondary school. Despite having average grades at school, he has always been afraid of English, to the point of hesitating to speak it. Andy is a typical slow starter; when under pressure, he easily feels overwhelmed. This became even more evident after he took the AEAS test unprepared, resulting in scores far below expectations. The AEAS report recommended Andy to undertake an English course for 20-30 weeks, and the substantial cost of attending a 30-week language course in Australia, including tuition, accommodation, and student insurance, caused considerable concern for his parents. Not only were they considering the dual factors of time and finances, but they also hoped that Andy could have more opportunities to apply to his desired schools. That's when they found us, the only official preparatory course institution recognized by AEAS. In the 1-on-1 courses at Ascent Prep, students receive meticulous instruction from teachers and consultants, improving their English skills and gradually overcoming their fear of English. To the parents' surprise, the child performed excellently in the AEAS test. By achieving good results in Hong Kong, the AEAS report reduced the required language class from 30 weeks to just 4 weeks before entering mainstream schools in Australia. This not only saved money but also allowed the child to integrate into the Australian mainstream education system sooner.
