On Wednesday October 10th 2012, our 1st to 4th Year Duke-NUS Students had the opportunity to attend a Career Sharing Session, which was organized by the Student Affairs Department. Registrations for the event began at around 6.00pm and the students were able to enjoy a delicious buffet dinner with their peers, seniors and juniors before the talks and personal consultation clinics with the doctors and faulty members began.

Various student interest groups were also present to publicize their clubs and activities to the Duke-NUS student population. Some of these interest groups included the Pediatrics Interest Group, Sports Interest Group, Duke-NUS Christian Fellowship and many more. The student interest group fair attracted many students, who were keen on signing up for the various activities.

During the periods of spring-summer, the 2012 Project Karen team set off as planned on 27th April and headed towards Chiang Mai, Thailand. Sixteen of us, including thirteen Duke-NUS medical students and three doctors, felt very excited about this mission trip and were ambitious in achieving our planned goals.
