The South African Medical Student Advisors office was recently blessed with a visit from Cristina Todoran, MSA’s Romanian Regional Manager. MSA CEO Santhan, was also in South Africa during Cristina’s visit.

During her visit, Cristina received important training on team management on how to manage logistics upon arrival of large groups of students to Romania, whom usually come to study medicine. The arrival of international students in large numbers has always been a challenge. There are factors like temporary accommodation, transport, food, visa extensions, registrations, handling the odd emergencies and the most challenging being emotional, psychological and cultural matters. Over the years of handling this process MSA has developed a system that allows us to overcome these challenges effectively and ensure the wellbeing of our clients. Of course, we’re still learning and constantly re-evaluating our approach.
