Four students from I.M Sechenov First Moscow State Medical University participated in the 13th Inter-Medical School Physiology Quiz (IMSOQ). The event was held at the University Malaya, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia on the 12th and 13th August 2015. The First Med participants were Khaled, Siti Aisyah Aqilah, Chen Zhi Tian and Stephanie Goh.
The event was held for two consecutive days and included two parts of the competition. On the first day of the event all the contestants from ninety-two different universities from over 35 countries wrote their multiple-question answers. The quiz session lasted for two hours. It began at ten in the morning and ended at twelve noon. The organizers provided all the participants with lunch. Later at night, there was a cultural event at the University. All of the contestants were invited and entertained by local cultural performances. In addition, the results of the quiz session of the competition were announced by Dr. Cheng Hwee Ming at the event and forty universities were chosen for the final round. The next day of the competition was the final round. It was an oral session. Out of the forty universities Universitas Gadjah Mada, Indonesia won the competition.
Such events are extremely popular with students all over the world. Their participants have a unique opportunity not only to objectively assess their own level of training, but also to join the community of the future health professionals, establish friendships and business relationships, see the world and broaden their horizons.
I.M. Sechenov First MSMU is not only an active participant in these useful activities, but also regularly serves as its organizer. Thus, in November 2015 on the basis of our university will be held the Second all-Russian student competition on the normal physiology, in which international students will perform with their own team. They also plan to take part in the 14th International Olympiad on physiology, which will take place in the summer of 2016 in Indonesia.
