I just finished writing out notes about First Aid Training which I only managed to capture photos of the slides yesterday haha.
So here I am, in International Medical University, as a medical student.
Cewah cara cakap macam I'm a doctor, padahal just started my degree haha.
Basically these 2 weeks are orientation weeks but I only attend those briefings and talks with lecturers.
I decided not to attend the orientation conducted by seniors bcs of some personal reasons which I think it isn't really appropriate to write them here.
I stay in Vista Komanwel C which is just about 10 to 15 minutes walk from IMU and LRT station.
All of my housemates are 3rd semester medical students; Kak Nas, Najwa, Faika, Am and Thivya.
Alhamdulillah, I'm really really grateful to have them as my housemates.
Easier for me to ask anything about medic and the most important thing is they're very friendly and kind!
IMU is really strict about 2 things which are; dress code & speaking English.
No jeans, no slippers, no funky clothes etc.
Everyone wears formal attire.
Yes, Friday is casual day (casual lah sangat haha) which means Polo shirt is allowed but still no t-shirt, no jeans, no slippers.
Neither blaming nor breaking IMU rules as I personally think that this is the best way to train all future doctors, dentists, nurses, and pharmacists to dress well.
Of course you don't wanna see doctors wearing t-shirt with baggy jeans right?
Oh yes, speaking English is compulsory when you're in the campus.
Still trying my best not to speak Malay with my Malay friends hehe.
There are only about 20 Malays (I bet it's less than 20) out of 200+ medical students.
But that doesn't mean that we have to stay around and stick with Malays only.
After knowing our groups for the orientation weeks, either in the lecture hall or auditorium, we usually sit according to groups so it's easier for us (read: them) to discuss about the performances etc.
Sporting course mates and group mates.
Though we're from different races and religions, we treat each other nicely.
The other thing that I really like about studying in IMU is the theory and clinical parts aren't separated in different semesters.
As like me, during my first semester I'll have Foundation Module and clinical practice at the same time.
We will also have few clinic visits this semester.
I just can't wait to start everything hehe.
Alright I shall continue studying.
Kiasu much haha.
Today I'm gonna share with you the application process after you have completed your pre-university study (such as A-Level, IB, Foundation etc). I just completed everything and decided to share the process here in my blog.
1. After you have really make up your mind where to further your study, open eSILA website (here) and click "SISTEM PROFILING BURSARY", 5th box on the right column.
2. Click "DAFTAR" if you haven't registered yet.
3. Click "LOG MASUK" and enter your ic number and password to log in.
4. Fill in all the details in PENGAKUAN, PROFIL PEMOHON, MAKLUMAT KELUARGA and MAKLUMAT AKADEMIK. Click "CETAK SLIP" > "MUAT TURUN SLIP PERMOHONAN" and print it.
5. Prepare all the documents needed before sending them to JPA office. You can go there by yourself or just send them by post. You'll get an email after that.
6. Follow all instructions in "E-PENAWARAN" as stated in the email above.
7. Print the "SENARAI SEMAK" so it's easier for you to check whether all documents needed are already prepared or not.
Be careful when you fill in the "DOKUMEN PERJANJIAN BIASISWA PERSEKUTUAN".
Make sure you follow all of the guidelines given so you won't make any mistake.
Use black ball pen, write with capital letters, make sure that all dates are the same etc.
Provide a copy of your Bank Islam slip.
Don't worry if you forget to open a Bank Islam account as you can do it at Kompleks Kerajaan Parcel E which is nearby the Kompleks C.
Then send all documents to JPA Office at Kompleks C, 5th floor and voila everything's done!
I hope this post may help you.
