Obstetric Ultrasound is the first Mini-Workshop organised under MMI Malaysia that is cohort-specific and subject-specific, delivering high impact content to a specific cohort of students that will be of benefit to them in the future. This workshop took place on 16th February 2019 in collaboration with the Clinical School Johor Bahru, Monash University Malaysia and the Department of Obstetrics & Gynecology, Hospital Sultanah Aminah, Johor Bahru (HSAJB). This workshop was opened to all year 4 and 5 medical students from Monash University Malaysia.
The full itinerary of the workshop began with an introduction by the President and Organising Chairperson, Darien Liew Daojuin, followed by an opening speech by Dr J. Ravichandran, the Head of Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, HSAJB. The workshop had consisted of 2 keynote lectures on first and third-trimester ultrasound and second-trimester ultrasound. These keynotes intended to introduce important key aspects of obstetric ultrasound to medical students. In the afternoon, the students were split into four groups. There were four stations each occupied by an obstetric patient of the varying trimester. The ultimate goal for this segment is that every medical student would have performed a full ultrasound assessment on all first, second and third trimester patients.
Needless to say, it has been an eventful collaboration. Feedback was well received and talks were made to ensure this workshop continues the next year with the Monash University Medicos Society taking the lead. On MMI’s part, the importance of delivering a workshop that actually provides a significance is realised. Our goal is achieved, and we hope to deliver more workshops like this in the future.
