Written by mcdcimsa, on December 15th, 2019
PIIT stands for Pre-Incoming Arrival Training and 3E stands for Early Exposure to Exchange. The two projects are combined in a one-day training program held on Saturday, 9th November 2019. The purpose of this project is to educate the first year members as well as the second year members of the Standing Committee on Professional Exchange (SCOPE) CIMSA UPH.
Before the start of the presentation, a pre-test was held to test the members on their pre-existing knowledge of the field of exchange. The speakers for the day were the Local Exchange Officer for Incoming, Raden Ayu Sarah Nathania Raissa, and Local Exchange Officer for Outgoing, Clauvinna Adhityana Lie Fisca.
The members were first familiarized with the International Federation of Medical Students Associations (IFMSA) and the information surrounding the organization. Then, they were thought the basics about the incoming students which will be staying for their professional exchange program for 20 working days. Sarah explained the process of receiving incomings and showed the documents that the members needed to familiarize themselves with in order to smoothen the process of exchange later on. She also explained the activities that will be carried out during the arrival and post-arrival stage of the exchange and showed past experiences that earlier incomings have experienced on their exchange here in Indonesia.
A quote was presented to the members that said, “treat incoming like how you want to be treated”. The quote serves as the basis of the attitude that the members would not to show in order to make the incoming students feel welcome and enjoy their stay in Indonesia. The goal is to be the best host possible and leave a good impression so we can make the incoming students’ exchange a memorable experience that will last a lifetime.
The next part of the presentation is 3E, led by Vinna. She explained the terms and conditions of an exchange and the types of contracts between countries that will be involved in the exchange. The timeline of the outgoing exchange for this academic year was also presented and briefly explained. As members of SCOPE, the first years and second years would have to deal with a lot of documents in order to process the exchange of the outgoings of UPH. All the documents needed were explained in order for the first year members to be familiarized with them. The process of outgoings were explained for the beginning of the application to the end of the exchange. Communication with the outgoings while on their exchange period was also taught.
After the presentation was a snack break and food was distributed. The last thing was an explanation of the national committees related with SCOPE and then a post-test was held to evaluate the effectivity of the program.
