Worldwide Medivest, Usim sign MoU


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.
