part 2 : SPA interview

Alhamdulillah the interview was over.
Here are some of the questions:
1.Who choose medicine? Is it you, your mom, or your dad?
2.Why choose medicine?
3.What makes a good doctor? Bad doctor?
4.What are the responsibility of a housemen?
5. What are the difficulties you find during your study years in Indonesia?
6. What are the main diseases in Malaysia?
7. Examples of tropical disease?
8. Tell me about malaria.
9.Tell me about dengue. (please refer to cpg for answers)
10. If you are a public health doctor, what would you do if there is a dengue case?

Actually it's pure luck really. My interview panel was super nice. They comprise of 2 people, 1 from SPA, 1 from KKM. So 1 will ask the non-medical questions, the other the medical questions.

My friends had different experiences from me. Some have to answer about 1 Malaysia, National Key Result Ares(NKRA) for the non-medical questions. Some are quite lucky, where the KKM representative cant make it, so they just have this 'chit-chat'.

It's good to be prepared, you are going to be a doctor after all. :)

Applying for work Part 1

Alhamdulillah after securing my SKTL, I can proceed to apply for work! O_o
So here's what I did, hope this can help future graduating students from USU :)

1) Fill in the SPA 8i form.
Link :
You will need to register. You can actually fill the form when you're a final year student.

2) Download and fill in the MMC & KKM (BMD) form
KKM (BMD) : , you can also just come to the KKM office and fill in the forms, bring along your verified IC, SPM and related documents.

Documents needed:
a) identity card
b) birth cert
c) SPM cert
d) S.Ked cert
f) transcript (in my case, I just photocopy the KHSes)
g) money order/bank draft of RM20 to MMC

verify them all, if there is any discrepancy in your names, see a commissioner of oaths to verify that the different names are actually you.

3) Send the MMC form
I did this by hand, at the moment, MMC is situated at Jln. Cenderasari (near Masjid Negara) in Kuala Lumpur. Then we have to wait for about 10 minutes, and received the temporary registration letter.

4) Send the KKM form (Borang Maklumat Diri -BMD)
You can actually do this by post, but I send it by hand anyway, the office is situated at Kompleks E Putrajaya. So I just drop it off.

5) Save the date! SPA interview
I didn't call the SPA yet at this time, so I decided to drop by the SPA office in Kompleks C Putrajaya and set the date for interview.An alternative is that you can just call them.

In short, here's what you need to do :
