New Straits Times - - News -

SUBANG JAYA: World­wide Me­di­vest Sdn Bhd signed a mem­o­ran­dum of un­der­stand­ing (MoU) with Univer­siti Sains Is­lam Malaysia (Usim) yes­ter­day to boost aca­demic ex­cel­lence in Usim’s Fac­ulty of Medicine.

World­wide Me­di­vest was rep­re­sented by its ex­ec­u­tive direc­tor, Ah­mad Az­man Az­izul Rah­man, while Usim was rep­re­sented by Vice-Chan­cel­lor Pro­fes­sor Datuk Dr Musa Ah­mad.

The col­lab­o­ra­tion would al­low for bet­ter net­work­ing be­tween the two par­ties and boost stu­dents’ aca­demic per­for­mances.

As part of its cor­po­rate so­cial re­spon­si­bil­ity, World­wide Me­di­vest also pro­vided med­i­cal books and the Qu­ran, as Qu­ranic stud­ies are part of Usim’s cur­ricu­lum.

Be­sides pro­vid­ing med­i­cal equip­ment, World­wide Me­di­vest will also or­gan­ise skills train­ing pro­grammes for Usim’s med­i­cal stu­dents, par­tic­u­larly in sur­gi­cal su­tures.

“We hope that this MoU serves as a start­ing point for col­lab­o­ra­tions be­tween in­dus­try play­ers and pub­lic higher ed­u­ca­tion in­sti­tu­tions, par­tic­u­larly in the med­i­cal field,” Az­man said.

Other teach­ing hos­pi­tals that re­ceived equip­ment were Univer­siti Malaya Med­i­cal Cen­tre, Univer­siti Ke­bangsaan Malaysia Med­i­cal Cen­tre and Univer­siti Sains Malaysia Med­i­cal Cen­tre.

Five non-gov­ern­men­tal or­gan­i­sa­tions re­ceived cash and med­i­cal equip­ment val­ued at RM30,000 each to be used for their hu­man­i­tar­ian mis­sions.

They were Aman Palestin, Is­lamic Re­lief Malaysia, Mercy Malaysia, the Malaysian Con­sul­ta­tive Coun­cil for Is­lamic Or­gan­i­sa­tions and Hu­man­i­tar­ian Care Malaysia.
