15th November – 18th November the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences have the pleasure to host dr Nelroy Jones- Resident Intern from University Hospitals Cleveland Medical Center, USA. Students of Medicine both in English and Polish language take part in the lectures conducted by the Doctor. Lectures based on active learning, team-based activities and work on cases, are a new experience and a great challenge for our students.

Nelroy G. Jones, M.D., M.S. M.Ed., I am a resident in Internal Medicine at University Hospitals in Cleveland where I work at the Cleveland Medical Center and the Veterans Affairs Hospital of Cleveland. I am originally from St. Catherine, Jamaica and moved to the US after high school for college. I attended Benedict College where I earned my degree in Chemistry with a minor in Physics. I started graduate school in Bio-organic chemistry but decided that I did not enjoy basic science research but loved teaching. I taught high school chemistry and physics for several years before heading to medical school. While teaching I earned my Masters in Education with Specialization in Divergent Learning (Columbia College) and also my Master’s in Biomedical Science (Geisinger Commonwealth Medical College) prior to attending medical school at Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine.

Students at UJK are very bright, outgoing (once you get past their initial shyness) and passionate about their education. They have been very interactive and have worked well with me even though there was a significant language barrier for several students. The faculty have been kind, friendly and welcoming. I immediately felt comfortable when I arrived. It was a pleasure to work with these experts in their individual fields and learn more about medicine from a Polish perspective. The facilities and technology available are top notch!
