MEDICAL STUDENT ASSOCIATION

Medical Student Association (MESTA) from the Faculty of Medicine UiTM is one of the first associations established among medical students since the faculty was established in 2003. The main function of this association is to provide a suitable platform for medical students to hold and participate in activities that can lead student development in medical and non -medical knowledge. The association also plays a role in strengthening academic development in the faculty through the involvement of students with the faculty administration as well as holding activities that emphasize the improvement and advancement of medical knowledge among the members of the association. Among the activities that have given the most significant positive impact include ‘Medical Olympiad’ (Pre-Clinical & Clinical), ‘Tour De Medicine’ to national and international educational institutions, ‘Annual Grand Dinner’ and Prayer of Wishes. Students will also be involved in community welfare activities to villages throughout Malaysia known as Bakti Siswa (BAKSIS).
