Are you a medical student in a UK/Ireland university?
Finding it challenging to keep up with medicine?
Studying your head off for the exams yet finding it difficult to be on top of your game?
The lone Malaysian medical student in your university and struggling to adapt?
Been there, done that!
Fear not.. For help is near!
We present to you, Malaysian Medical Students Training Initiative!
In general, being an international medical student in a different culture and setting away from home is challenging. Moreover, medical students have to adapt to the university learning style, and learn to be responsible of their own learning, especially in clinical years. Recently, there is a growing number of medical students facing serious academic problems, resulting in them having to repeat a year of study or being asked to withdraw from the program. This is unfortunate, as these students are the cream of the crop and most strive their best in medical school.
At the same time, there are also a growing population of Malaysian medical doctors working in the United Kingdom who are excellent clinicians and enthusiastic teachers.
As a student body committed to the holistic development of students, IKRAM UKE is taking this initiative to help support medical students being excellent students, competent doctors who contribute to the society.
