Practical experience during Pre-College


For better orientation, participants in the Pre-College Fulda programme complete an internship. Ashwini Pradhan shares her experience at the KMG Klinik Silbermühle Plau am See.

My name is Ashwini Pradhan. I am 20 years old and come from Nepal. I currently participate in the preparatory programme Pre-College here at Fulda University of Applied Sciences.

First of all, I would like to thank the Pre-College team for giving us this wonderful opportunity to do an internship. For me personally it was very interesting, because I had never done an internship in my life. But since I got this opportunity, I did my internship at the KMG Klinik Silbermühle Plau am See, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern.

My internship lasted 3 weeks. I was so fortunate that I got the chance to work in different departments of healthcare in these 3 weeks. For example, the first two days I worked in the nutrition and diet department, then 3 days in physiotherapy, then also in social services, art therapy, communication between the ward doctor and patients. I also worked in the nurses’ room, in the speech therapy department and finally in the psychology department.

It was the most amazing, outstanding experience for me. I learned many, many things through this internship. The main goal for me was to observe and see how the healthcare system works here in Germany.

That's all about my internship. Thanks very much!!
