Medical Boot Camp at GIS
Unique Approach to Introduce Students to PU-RCSI Medical Programme
Following the success of the first Medical Boot Camp, Perdana University recently ventured to Garden International School (GIS) at Mont Kiara to introduce students to the medical course offered by PU-RCSI. Similar to the first Boot Camp, students were given the chance to tie sutures on a simulated tissue, perform CPR, and explore the human anatomy with selected specimens from the Perdana University Anatomy Museum.
The participants, ranging from Grades 10-13, were students who expressed an interest to pursue careers in medicine or related health science fields. The session gave them a feel of how courses are taught at PU-RCSI – with modern patient simulators, plenty of hands-on activities, and grounded on student-centred learning philosophy.
Said Yen Zi Lau, Grade 12, “The activities were really engaging and gave me a nice educational insight as to what I may learn in the course.” Kiran, Grade 13, said that the faculty members (Prof Mike Larvin, Prof. Raghu, Dr. Christina Liew, and Dr. Thirupathirao) made the session fun and inspiring.
We thank the participants, their counsellors, in particular Dr. Michael Browning as well as everyone at GIS for their help in making this event a success. We also thank the faculty members and PU-RCSI graduates Dr. Sinthu and Dr. Logan who assisted with conducting the activities.
