THE Second Malaysian Medical Students’ Summit 2016 will be held from July 23 to 24 at SEGi University.
It is expected to attract more than 1,000 participants from medical schools around the world.
The summit is hosted by SEGi University and sponsored by Sunway Medical Centre.
The theme of the summit is “Future of Malaysian Medicine”.
Its organising committee aims to create a symposium for key policy makers from the Health Ministry to engage medical students on the latest issues and challenges faced by industry professionals.
“With access to a credible source of information regarding their future in medicine in Malaysia, medical students will be better prepared to face the upcoming challenges and become more proactive in resolving the issues,” said Malaysian Medics International chairman and chief convener Vikkineshwaran Siva Subramaniam.
The annual event offers plenary lectures, panel discussions and hands-on workshops for participants to learn from medical experts about clinical skills and career opportunities as well as the latest research and development updates in the field of medical science.
There will also be a career exhibition for preliminary job-matching and post-graduate training between various medical institutes and organisations for prospective graduates. There will be a gala dinner on the first day of the summit.
“Among the key objectives of the Malaysian Medics International is to connect graduates from various medical learning institutions, educating them on key issues in public health and medical research, as well as cultivating a sense of camaraderie and purpose amongst medical students,” said Vikkineshwaran.
