From The President

We are 60 years old!!! And it surely calls for a celebration.

We are reminded of our amazing past, of the continuity of our impact story and the virtues of resilience, ingenuity and excellence which created it.

Over the years, one can observe the impact UIMSA has made in helping to improve the healthcare of Nigeria through several successful advocacy campaigns and community health outreaches on several health issues such as HIV/AIDS, non-communicable diseases, maternal and child health through the partnership with a lot of reputable organizations like Ford Foundation, Association for Reproductive and Family Health (ARFH), LEAP Africa and Tony Elumelu Foundation.

Most recently in 2018, UIMSA hosted the best FAMSA General Assembly so far where we had partners such as the World Health Organization, Johnson and Johnsons, several key speakers across the world and medical students all across the world together to discuss pertinent issues concerning global health and the way forward. Through this means, we believe we were able to spark the interest and to build world changers. This is what we do and this is we what we hope to keep doing.

It is my sincere hope that the Diamond jubilee would be a start point for more impactful projects for the development of our members and to the society.

I, therefore, welcome you to the official website of the University of Ibadan Medical Students’ Association where you can get to see us and follow our activities.

Interred within are; creative articles, animated pictures and ingenious literary works, showcasing our talents in multifaceted dimensions and our zeal to participate in the happenings of the medical world. Indeed our drive to give back to the Society positively has been a key factor which has constantly morphed us.

You can always check back here for the updates of our activities and the resolutions from the pragmatic and pristine dealings of our Senate and Congress meetings, to ensure that all are on-board as we chart a bold course towards the UIMSA of our dream.

Once again, welcome!

Signed,
Boluwatife Aderounmu
2018/2019 UIMSA President
