In order to expand the international perspective of undergraduate students and enhance their international cooperation and communication ability, with the strong support of the school and the university, 31 undergraduate students in our college successfully completed the exchange and learning tasks of Mahidol University in Thailand.
During the two-week study, the students were fortunate to participate in international academic conferences, and systematically learned about the Thai medical service system and related content in subsequent special lectures. They thought hard and made bold speeches in class, actively communicated with experts / professors after classes, showing the charm of students of Sichuan University.

In addition, the classmates visited the Thailand OPHET Office of Mahidol University and observed the traditional Thai medical treatment on the spot. Taking a patient as an example, Dr. Vanvisa introduced the characteristics of traditional Thai treatment to the students. Among them, the use of "chopsticks" (actually a wooden stick or iron stick specially made by Thai Medical) to relax the muscles aroused strong interest from the students. It is reported that the Thai Ministry of Health's annual expenditure for promoting the development of traditional medicine is about 130 million baht (about 30 million yuan). Provincial hospitals and rural hospitals have traditional Thai medical clinics or clinics. Patients can choose treatment with modern or traditional medicine. At present, traditional Thai medicine has become one of the important links in Thai health education and disease prevention.
