Regional Chairperson’s Address
Dear people of tomorrow,
medicine is a field that can be traced to thousands of years back with a rich history. The Babylonians and the Egyptians were the very first physician, the Greeks introduced the concept of the medical diagnosis and Hippocrates wrote the Hippocratic oath, which remains until today a rite that every doctor makes on entry into this age-old profession. Much has changed since those days. Our techniques, drugs and approach to our patients have evolved much. At the heart of these evolution is collaboration. Collaborations have allowed for many researches to be carried out in the hopes of better care for our patients.
AMSA Malaysia was established in 1983 with the aim of promoting the spirit of collaboration among the medical fraternity and to provide a platform for medical students to utilize their medical skills beyond the confines of the clinics or hospitals to benefit those otherwise out of reach. AMSA also promotes the collaboration between the medical field and the allied health profession that includes nurses, pharmacists, physiotherapists and the many other professions. Here at AMSA Malaysia we believe that excellent interdisciplinary cooperation is a prerequisite for excellent care for the patients.
AMSA Malaysia hopes that it encourages our budding doctors to carry these principles into their working life and become leaders in whichever fields they may be taking up. Therefore as the Regional Chairperson of AMSA Malaysia, I implore all of you to join our family and to excel as well-rounded medical students!
