INJECTION 3rd INTERVENTION
(International Journal Dissection)
SCOPE CIMSA-BEM KM FK UNAND
According to research from Central Connecticut State University regarding the “World’s Most Literate Nations Rankings” in March 2016, Indonesia was ranked 60th out of 61 countries regarding reading interest. Followed with UNESCO data in 2016, the interest in reading of the Indonesian people was very concerning, which was only 0.001%. This means that out of 1,000 Indonesians, only 1 person is an active reader. Apart from low reading interest, English proficiency is currently quite urgent, considering the wide range of exchanges in various scientific fields from various countries makes us as the millennial generation have to master English well so that we are not left behind with other countries. According to data from the EF English Proficiency Index, Indonesia only achieved an average score of 50.06 for English proficiency, so it was ranked 61 out of 100 countries in the world and ranked 13 out of 25 countries in Asia. From these data, it can be concluded that English proficiency in Indonesia is still low.
Thus, SCOPE CIMSA-BEM KM FK Unand promoted a Community Development to provide information and dissemination of international medical journals to Unand medical students to initiate a change in perspective on global health issues and improve English language skills which will be explained by English language course institutions and lecturer of FK Unand.
This activity supporting the 4th SDGs, that is "Ensuring Inclusive Education and Encouraging Long-Life Learning Opportunities for All People". This activity also supports the CIMSA Program: “Human Resources for Health”.
INJECTION consists of several interventions which are expected to increase the interest of Unand Medical Education students to read and seek information directly from International Medical Journals and to improve their English language skills and implement them through the publication of articles.
On October 29th 2020, SCOPE CIMSA-BEM KM FK Unand has held 3rd intervention of INJECTION. In these interventions, participants of INJECTION presented their articles result from small working group followed by the announcement for the best article award. The two articles winner will be published on CIMSA Unands’ magazine and a local newspaper “Singgalang”. After that, we annouced several participants for the next cadres of INJECTION 2020.
We hope that, the participants could implement what they have got from this intervention to their daily academic activity and would share their knowledge and experiences throughout the community.
