There were also performances from orchestra and vocal group of FKUI. The technical meeting for the competitions tomorrow was also held and that remarks the end of opening ceremony.
The second day of NMGBC 2016 started with preliminary for participants which was divided into two groups, while the teachers were given seminars. After finishing preliminary, participants and teachers had the chance to attend several seminars about Tuberculosis, considering World Tuberculosis Day on March 24, in attempt to raise awareness and knowledge regarding tuberculosis. NMGBC also did not miss to give the participants many workshops in the hope that they obtained basic soft skills on Basic Life Support and Ambu-Bag Ventilation. By that, the second day of NMGBC has officially ended.
Last day of NMGBC 2016 was really awaited since the participants who made it to the semifinal were announced in the morning. Of the 331 participants, there were 60 participants with the highest score who went to the semifinal round. So while the semifinalists once again compete, the others were given the intracampus tour of FKUI. NMGBC provided four spots in this tour: skills lab, pathological anatomy museum, intubation workshop, and UI campus tour with ‘Bus Kuning’ hoping to give a taste of being medical students of FKUI to the students. The tour was nicely done.
