“Medical Students and Volunteerism”
One of the prominent features of the doctors in FIMA is the spirit of
volunteerism. Her doctors have volunteered in virtually all of the
humanitarian and medical activities in the many disaster zones. This
altruistic spirit of our IMAs and our medical professionals has been
recognized by many international agencies. The latest being the award by the
American College of Physicians in April 2009 to our FIMA SAVE VISION, a
project of FIMA Relief, started in 2004 to address the need for ophthalmic
services in 8 different countries.
It is this spirit of volunteerism, which we hope to infuse among our younger
generation of doctors, allied health professionals and medical students.
Often absorbed in the acquisition of knowledge (cognitive domain); our
students are often found lacking in the affective domain, which is equally
important in the nurturing of a passionate, compassionate and caring health
This International Student Camp in Malaysia presents as another opportunity
to focus on yet another important aspect in the holistic training of a
health care professional i.e. the realm of VOLUNTEERISM.
This would be achieved through a well-designed training module with special
emphasis on the practical aspects of volunteerism. There is wealth of
experience within our institution, which can be shown cased to all our
students at the camp.
The program will be performed in the format of a series of brief talks
followed by group workshops on the same topics over the few days time of the
