First and foremost, AIMST campus is surrounded with lush greenery which by itself is a rare sight that we get to enjoy in today’s world. The reason for me saying so is that the peaceful and green campus provides a very conducive environment for us to learn and acquire knowledge. Secondly, the lecturers of Faculty of Medicine in AIMST University never cease to amaze me with their vast knowledge and experience.

Being a second-year medical student, I am grateful for the wonderful experience that I have gained throughout the past 1.5 years. The lecturers practice open communication with us and are very experienced in teaching. Our simulation lab is well equipped to allow students to have maximum exposure and sharpen our skills. The great facilities, friendly environment and hands-on practical conducted will definitely prepare me to be a great practitioner in the future. I am proud to be an AIMSTER.
