Dear May Kuan,

Hi, I'm Amanda Khoo Yin Yen, working as an assistant for Prof Chin Kin Fah from UH. I was the one who called you the other day regarding the 30 part time job openings for medical students. Basically, this project is a point prevalence study headed by PENSMA (the parenteral & enteral nutrition society of Malaysia) where my professor whom i work for is involved. The details are as follow:

1. Work - Collect data from hospitals. Its a nutritional based study, students will be trained a day before data collection in a workshop organized by PENSMA where they will learn how to handle various measuring instruments, history taking, proper physical examination , analyzing data etc. After data collection, students will have to analyzed and present their data collected to the team.

2. Time- 1 day of training (workshop) and 5 days of data collection. Start early next year (2nd or 3rd week of January, yet to be confirmed)

3. Place- Hospitals around Malaysia. Can be posted anywhere, i.e Penang, Kedah, Johor, Seremban

4. Accomadation and transportation- All provided and paid for. Good accomadation conditions.

5. Salary- It's a paid job however not sure how much just yet. The company is still trying to negotiated fees.

6. Requirements- Basically any medical students who are interested can participate in this project.

Why should a medical student be involved in this ?

This project is a very good CV booster (national project, prestigious) and you can get paid at the same time. Students can include all the activities that they are involve in and PENSMA will reward all participants with a certificate of appreciation. This is very valueble esp to those students who are going overseas.

thank you
