(Hari Dokter Nasional 2020)
SCOME CIMSA FK UNPAD
Hari Dokter Nasional or National Doctor’s Day is an annual celebration on October 24th to appreciate the doctor's hard work and service to society and individual life. Hopefully, this series of National Doctor’s Day activities could encourage us to be more appreciative of our great doctors' dedication out there. They were willing to risk their lives for our country's sake and provide an overview of the doctor's life as the front line for medical students in Indonesia.
This year's commemoration of National Doctor Day, SCOME CIMSA FK Unpad raised the theme, "The Unseen: Doctors Dedication in Fighting against COVID-19 Pandemic," of several series of events held from October 24th until December 12th, 2020. This year's activity included thank you video, appreciation letter, video challenge, and talk show via Instagram.
First, we made a thank you video. We collaborated with medical students of FK Unpad to tell about their opinions of a doctor, the meaning of a doctor to them, and give their thoughts and appreciation to all COVID-19 front liners.
We collaborated with AMSA-Unpad and BEM-HIMA KEMA FK Unpad and asked them to give their messages to the doctors. We also made a platform for medical students of FK Unpad to send their appreciation, hopes, and wishes to the doctors in FK Unpad.
We also held a video challenge competition with three themes: life as a medical student, unforgettable moments as a medical student, and the expectation vs. reality of medical student life. They had to make a short video and uploaded it on their Instagram accounts. The most fascinating and unique video won the prize of a total of Rp150.000- in the form of Gopay. This competition opened for all medical students in Indonesia.
Lastly, we held a talk show with a COVID-19 front liner, dr. Muh. Syahrimal Ishak from MSF Indonesia, upholding the theme is One Day in Life as COVID-19 Front liners, talking about how it feels like a front liner. We were discussing the public's perspective about COVID-19 and the doctors. So, at the end of the talk show, we could know more about the life of COVID-19 front liners.
Overall, we were pleased to conclude that our activity has successfully facilitated doctor appreciation and provided an overview of COVID-19 front liners. We sincerely hope that our activities will inspire doctors and provide medical students with the information they need.
