On 15th May 2016, one of the final year dental students, Nurul Ehsan Haji Omar was selected to represent Faculty of Dentistry, USIM in 8th 3M –Malaysian Association for Prosthodontics Intervarsity Prosthodontic Competition that has been held at Universiti Sains Islam Malaysia (USIM), NIlai, Negeri Sembilan. In this competition, the participant was required to present her clinical case that was suitable with the theme proposed by the organizer; ‘Bridge the Gap’.
This competition was participated by students from dental faculties of universities in Malaysia. The participant from USIM presented her clinical case which was supervised by Dr Nusima Mohamed and Dr Wan Nor Syariza Wan Ali. The clinical case managed to get the third place in overall following the second place won by participant from Universiti Teknologi Mara (UiTM) and the first place from Asia Institute of Medical, Science and Technology (AIMST) University.
In conclusion, we hoped that this success will motivate other students to work hard in clinical practices even though they might encounter hardship along the way. We can be a successful by contemplating and pondering upon one of the verses of Al-Quran (94:5-6):
“ With every hardship there is ease. ”
Congratulations Ms Nurul Ehsan!!
