A group of NUS Medicine students hosted the 4th annual Muslim Healthcare Outreach Programme (MHOP) in NUS on 7 January 2017. The event was co-organised with the Muslim Healthcare Professional Association (MHPA) and NTU students. A total of 120 secondary- and tertiary-level students participated, and the organisers shared their experiences and knowledge of Singapore’s healthcare.
The objective of the MHOP was to encourage young Muslim peers to join the healthcare community, and tell them about on the various roles of healthcare professionals. The event consisted of talks and panel discussion on Medicine, Nursing, Dentistry, Pharmacy and Allied Health, and practical sessions at hands-on stations.
This is the fourth edition of MHOP. The Programme has reached out to more than 1,000 students over the years.
