. RCSI IC3 Osce tutorial report .


Date :           18th & 25th May, 1st June 2013
Venue :         Malaysian Hall, Dublin, Ireland

  In the name of Allah, the most beneficent the most merciful. Alhamdulillah, on the 18th, 25th of May and 1st of June, Islamic Medical Association of Malaysia (IMAM) in collaboration with IKRAM Ireland and Education Malaysia (EM) has successfully organized the very first Obstructive Structured Clinical Examination (OSCE) tutorial designed for third year students of Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland (RCSI).

The objectives of the OSCE tutorial were as follows;
1)      To gain confidence in performing a history taking skills.
2)      To be able to perform good physical examination skills with appropriate techniques.
3)      To equip medical students with common exam cases and questions in OSCE.
4)      To strengthen networking between medical students and doctors.

The collaborative effort involving students, seniors (newly graduated doctors) and current working doctors received positive feedbacks through out the three sessions held in Malaysian Hall, Dublin.

In conclusion, we would like to thank to all sponsors; EM, Majlis Amanah Rakyat Malaysia (MARA), personal donation and students for their financial supports. Also to doctors and seniors for their time and wisdom and lastly to everyone who made this tutorial a reality. We hope this pioneer work will be carried on next year.

A short presentation delivered by 4th med seniors was scheduled in the last minute before everyone dispersed for the day.

Recap: IMAM Med School Mayhem


   Alhamdulillah, IMAM Med School Mayhem has officially ended with the final event of the series, IMAM 5th Clinical Case Competition being held yesterday. Despite unable to conduct a workshop session as planned for this year, we were still able to organized two out of 3 events in total. Here we look back at both events occurring in March.

 1) IMAM Medical Quiz
 Date    : 1st March 2013
 Venue  : Cheyne Lect Theatre, RCSI 

This is truly a FUNtastic event, filled with laughter and knowledge packed quiz. Questions ranging from general knowledge to basic sciences and medically related cases gave participants a challenge to think and thus giving an educated answer. Four teams participated this year and each team consist of 1st year to 3rd year medical students. We introduced a new ruling this year called 'lifelines' and the options were 1) To use Google or 2) Phone a friend. Results ended up with a tie in both first place won by two female teams.

2) IMAM 5th Clinical Case Competition (CCC)
Date     : 31st March 2013
Venue  : Malaysian Hall, Dublin 6 Ireland

This highly renowned event is in its’ 5th consecutive year since the introduction in 2009. Attraction for this years’ CCC was the judges’ prize category for best presenter which was an iPad mini and a personal engraved pocket watch (contributed by one of the judges - Mr Kama Muhammad) to be given away. Also for the first time in 2013, we opened registration to UK clinical year students but unfortunately none participated. Nonetheless, 10 contestants presented their cases with good standards and we believed we were able to achieve the objectives of this event. Results in the end didn't matter as all 10 contestants tried their very best. Lastly, we would like to thank Education Malaysia (EM) for being our sponsor and to all five judges for allocating their time and donations for this event. We hope to continue this event and truly appreciate feed backs from judges and audiences for improvement in the future.
