PETALING JAYA: The field of medicine is one of the most compelling ones around. If you have the calling to save lives, don’t miss the Star Education Fair this weekend.
Medic Ed Consultant Sdn Bhd medical education consultant Dr Khoo Ching Soong will be sharing on what it takes to be a doctor.
“The workload is heavy but saving lives, meeting different people and preventing them from falling ill is very rewarding.
“The field requires a lot of passion. If you are a brilliant student but are pushed to do medicine by your parents and friends and eventually quit, it will be a waste of time and effort,” said the specialist registrar in internal medicine.
He will also speak on the life of a medical student and practitioner, besides giving advice on how to pick the right university.
Dr Khoo, a doctor for the past five years, said there were many misconceptions about the profession.
“Medicine is a lifelong career where you have to keep learning. It may not be easy but if you have the passion, it is fun,” he said.
Newcastle University Medicine Malaysia provost and chief executive officer Prof Reg Jordan will also be speaking at the fair and provide insight into the lives of medical students and doctors.
These experts will also take questions during a session titled “Medicine and Dentistry”, which will be held from 4.45pm to 6.15pm on the first day of the fair.
Visitors attending the Education and Career Talks will stand a chance to win e-tickets from Golden Screen Cinemas through fun quizzes.
The Star Education Fair will be held this weekend at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre from 11am to 7pm. Admission is free.
