Thanks to the Hubert Tuor Foundation, I received the financial support I needed to complete my medical studies at the University of Lausanne. It is not easy to find a way to finance a master’s degree through student jobs in addition to medical studies with a very sustained and demanding rhythm, scientific research work and internship in a hospital. I would like to thank the Hubert Tuor Foundation for giving me a scholarship that allows me to finish my training in the best possible conditions.
I am very happy to join the FHT community 242. I pledge to “give back” as much as possible of what has been offered to me, notably by promoting FHT to the events in which I will participate but also by the support of future members to ensure the sustainability of this magnificent philosophy of renewable philanthropy.
Thanks to your help, I was able to have two months of intensive work experience in the best paediatric hospital in Canada (CHU Sainte-Justine). My practical and theoretical knowledge was enriched on a daily basis through rigorous supervision by the consultants, who really added value for their students. I was lucky enough to receive a very warm welcome from them, and the fact that I would be making some reports to Switzerland meant that they were even happier to pass on their expertise to me. Montreal met all my expectations, in spite of the cold and the snow, and I really enjoyed sharing the lifestyle of the Quebecers, who were very friendly.
Thanks to your support, this unique experience provided a marvellous ending to my final year. It may have taken a year and a half to succeed in going, but it was well worth the waiting and the few sacrifices I made. I do not know how to thank you enough for contributing to it.
I proudly wore the Foundation Tuor T shirt on my last day at work, and luckily the weather was fine!
Thank you again for your trust in me and your support over the past year.
