Children can be doctors for a day at Mount Elizabeth Novena Hospital

Patients who visit Mount Elizabeth Novena Hospital on Saturday might be a little surprised to find the doctors in the hallways looking rather young.

The hospital is launching a programme where children can role play as doctors in a hospital setting. Donning scrubs and hair nets, they will learn how to conduct a "surgery" in an operating theatre as well as bathe, clean and diaper a baby in a nursing room, among other activities. These will be carried out in wards within the hospital.
