Young Columnists of MMG

The University of Melbourne – graduated 2013

I’ve been at the receiving end from the society for quite a while and I believe this is a good opportunity for me to contribute back to the public. I believe that we as health care providers are still lacking in educating our patients due to time constrain, mental constrain, language barrier etc. I hope this platform can help empower the public’s knowledge in health care and at the same time become a reference to Malaysians in the near future.

Everything has been surreal since this is my very first time joining such a program and I am glad that I did. It is a great opportunity for me to sharpen my writing skills, widen my knowledge and enlarge them beyond my circle of friends. Through this program I believe that I can give and express more information about health and increase public awareness in improving their healthy lifestyles.

I joined the program in order to gain new experiences and improve my writing skills. I believe that our society should be empowered with knowledge especially pertaining to the medical field. A site like The Malaysian Medical Gazette enable us to not only deliver knowledge to the society but also allows the society to get in touch directly with the specialist and consultants. In this way, the knowledge they gain are of quality and can be trusted. I would very much love to be part of this process of empowering the society.

Medicine has, is and will always be a very important part of my life. I am blessed to have been given the opportunity to study medicine and am looking forward to an interesting future and career.

My interest in writing on the other hand has been a driving force to help me improve and progress in many aspects of my life. That is the reason why, when I first heard about the Young Columnist programme, I was very much excited and eager to be part of it. I’ve always wanted to find a platform that would be instrumental in helping me to improve and develop my writing skills. It’s like getting the best of both worlds. With the YCP, I am looking forward to broadening my horizons and gaining experiences along the way.

Jordan University of Science & Technology, Jordan – 6th year

Despite our training requiring us to use more of our head than our heart, I am writing to call upon our fellow medical students to sometime use our heart just as much as we use our head.  Being a doctor for me is not just about reaching the diagnosis and treating the disease, instead it’s about being compassionate towards another human being, and this process should start as early as the first day you set foot in your clinical practice.


anisDr. Anis Nabillah Mohd Azli

Melaka Manipal Medical College (MMMC) – graduated 2014

I always believe that the young generation has a voice of their own and it is time for us to be heard, more critically. Medicine is not just book smart, it requires a whole lot of other things, which includes observing. As an ambitious writer myself, most of my inspirations are from observing the life around me and indeed I learned a lot from this. I would really like to share these experiences with others so that we can view things in a different perspective. With an awesome team to work with, I believe MMG Young Columnists Program will be a great start to something new!

I think Public Health is very interesting when I found MMGazette. So I made up my mind to join the Young Columnist Program and be part of the team. Since this is the first time I join such a program, I’m sure it will be a good experience and it can be of great help to me in my future career as a doctor.

Kursk State Medical University, Russia – 4th year

A doctor is able to guide a person through their most difficult times and provide any necessary assistance to the patient and his or her family by possessing the qualities of perseverance, empathy, compassion, and good listening skills. So through this program, I hope I would be able to be the one who can be a great help to everyone, besides exchanging knowledge with others.

I’ve always wanted to be a writer, so I thought this would be a good platform for me to learn how to be a good one! Apart from that, I have strong passion for mental health, especially in fighting the stigma. Therefore, I hope to create awareness with my writings.

Being a doctor is more than just treating illnesses. It is also about educating others on life and health. Not an excellent writer but will try to do my best educating others as we learn from each other day to day.

I am joining this unusual kind of program with medicine-based with nawaitu (niat) to broaden knowledge, as one of perks of using internet, improving my writing skill,  getting to know a lot of medical students/grads worldwide, and share information among us for the sake of our deeds in here and hereafter. InsyaAllah may this program become a great success.

I have always wanted to contribute something towards the betterment of health message delivery and I thought being one of MMG’s young columnist could serve the purpose. It is hoped that the public could gain something beneficial and able to educate the others from this. This initiative to change will absolutely open the door to the next and I am excited to be a part of this growing revolutionary health media.

Personally, I joined this program because it is a good medium to share articles on the medical world. Not only that, I now have the opportunity to sharpen my writing skills. But I really hope that with this program, I will be able to make some changes in the world and educate the society on how to better ourselves. Medical knowledge is important and I really want to create public awareness on how important health issues are.

My hopes and aspirations with MMG Young Columnist Programme and all the medical students out there is that we can together hand in hand learn and teach from each other and make sure the masses are well informed. Speak up, reach out.

The team of the Malaysian Medical Gazette is leading the changes that are happening and those that will in the health sector of Malaysia. And the Young Columnists Program is one of that changes. Let us encourage not only others, but ourselves too, to look beyond what the eyes can see and to hear stories beyond what the ears can listen. The young pioneers of changes. And won’t you join us in leading these changes too, readers?

Mansoura-Manchester Medical Program, Mansoura University, Egypt

Assalamualaikum wbt and greetings to all.

I love literature and words since as long as I can remember. Moreover, I usually find solace in writing, and I take it as my form of self-expressing. Hence, it is a little bit dreamlike for me to be a part of the team and to be able to contribute something to the society through my writings.

By joining the Young Columnist Program, I am hoping to learn to work as a team with fellow medical students and doctors; in outspreading the medical knowledge to the public as I believe team work is one of the crucial elements needed when you are working to serve the community.

I’m a third year medical student under a twinning program at International Medical University, Bukit Jalil, Malaysia. I believe in the importance of voicing out my opinions and I stand firm on my principles. I love talking and writing (and food!). I also write at my personal blog ( and do guest posts. I’m thrilled that I’m given the chance to work with the remarkable writers of the Young Columnists Program! So, bismillah.. let’s start this amazing journey



Wan SherhanWan Sherhan

Ain Shams University, Cairo, Egypt

To be in the faculty of medicine is my ambition since childhood. Now, when I am in it, I would like to share my experience and opinion in my point of view to all.  One of the way of sharing is by writing. At the same time this is an opportunity for me to improve my writing skills. With this Young Columnists Program it gives me an opportunity to achieve my wish to write and share to all.   To all the younger generations who are interested in this field, remember when there’s will there’s always a way out.
