National Medical and General Biology Competition 2020


National Medical and General Biology Competition (NMGBC) is the biggest annual event held by Asian Medical Students’ Association Universitas Indonesia (AMSA-UI). NMGBC is a scientific competition based on medical and general biology held for all high school students across Indonesia. Every year NMGBC comes up with different themes and topics, and last year’s theme was the Gastrointestinal system.

As for this year’s NMGBC, we’ve decided to go with the Special Senses as the theme of NMGBC 2020, as it has never been done before. These days, issues about our human special senses such as people living with cataract, blindness, and deafness are somehow neglected even though it’s included as one of the diseases with a high number of prevalence especially in Indonesia. Other than that, people suffering from sensory disorders and disabilities have lots of limitations throughout their life as it’s congenital. Blindness for example, Indonesia has a large population of blind people. According to the Badan Pusat Statistik, around 8,5% of the country’s total of 240 million people live with disabilities. This number includes 3,5 million people suffering from blindness, making Indonesia the second highest rate of blindness in the world.

Based on those concerns, in hoping to increase their knowledge and awareness to the community related to our human Special Senses system and disability, we’ve decided to come up with the Special Senses as the theme of NMGBC 2020.


NMGBC 2020 will be held ONLINE on Oct 10, 2020.
