Hi, Joss- I'll start:
Before the start of the second year of the first stage (after a\the competitive examination), medical students have to go on a training course in a department of the teaching hospital (or another hospital in the district) in order to learn nursing. I did my attachment in the hospital of Cholet in the department of physical medicine and rehabilitation. To begin, I will describe the department and its organization. Then I will explain what I did during my attachment and my impressions.
I'm not happy with the word 'attachment', but can't think of a better word- I'll come back later as I'm going into class now.
