Join us for an exciting educational journey, where children get to dress up and roleplay as Orthopaedic doctors. Your child will experience performing bone surgery in an Operating Theatre setting and learn to bandage knees in an Emergency Room, among other medical activities.
That was Parkway East Hospital “Doctor for a Day”s invitation. How can we reject something so unique!
Every season, “Doctor for a Day” specialise in a certain discipline. Last Month, it was Orthopaedic(bone). But the junior participants will get to learn about various traits of a good doctor and nurse.
The first task is to emphasize the importance of being hygenic. Kids learn how to disinfect and scrub their hands thoroughly. To look professional, everyone is issued uniform, facemask and shower cap.
Besides engaging the kids in edutainment, Parkway East Hospital is also giving back to the community. For every teddy bear purchased, Parkway East Hospital will contribute to a fund which hopes to subsidise the fees for 15 elderly folks to change the kneecap.
General Practitioner – kids orientate themselves with the use of the thermometer and stethoscope. Hello, do you know where is your heart?
The setup and poster reminds us of Kidzania (click for our Kidzanina Kuala Lumpur experience), but Parkway East Hospital’s “Doctor for a Day” is more realistic. We are in a real Hospital!
Feeding the babies, changing the diapers, making them burp, singing a lullaby, and selfie with the “babies”. You can hear bemused parents giggling and laughing outside Nursing room.
– “so cute”
– “aiyoh how come baby upside down”
– “Ah boy Ah girl come, let Daddy/Mummy take one photo”
Kids love the Operating Theater as they get to screw the metal plate onto the patient’s arms (eeeew gloss!). Actually, they need to stablise the limb, so that the bones and muscle tissues can recover faster.

Each batch of interns will go for their X-Ray (graduation photo shoot) and collect their certificates. Daddy and Mummy is definitely in good hands
as long as the kids keep their syringe out of sight as we trust Parkway East Hospital’s expertise 🙂
Thank you Parkway East Hospital for hosting us. Everyone know more about their “Doctors and Nurses” and it was really an entertaining way to learn.
