Behold, the first round of this awaited occasion, Endurance test! All participants will be served two sets of questions, General Biology and Medical Biology, where the top 50 teams will be selected to proceed to the next round!
National Medical and General Biology Competition
is an annual scientific competition held by Asian Medical
Student’s Association Universitas Indonesia (AMSA-UI). The event
gathers students from all around Indonesia, where they compete
in several different competitions, namely the general & medical
biology quiz, as well as the public poster and social campaign
competition. Each year, a specific theme regarding human health
became the focus of the competition. Themes revolving around the
cardiovascular system, digestive system, as well as special
sensory system had been the focus of past NMGBCs, encouraging us
to bring up a novel theme to NMGBC 2021.
This year, we have decided to raise the theme: Infectious Diseases, as we strongly believe that it is an issue that has remained relevant for decades, and is still a major burden for the economy & healthcare of our beloved country.
Various study results illustrate how Indonesia's diverse & rich ecosystem may sometimes bring harm to us, as it allows various diseases such as dengue, malaria, influenza to run rampantly in certain parts of the country. A 10-year study of our country regarding the various losses afflicted by the dengue virus has shown that there is little to no advancement in the reduction of losses, yet the number of new cases continues to rise each year. With these concerns in mind, we hoped that conceptualizing this year’s events around this topic would help in increasing participant’s knowledge and awareness of the various issues within the theme.
All participants will get e-certificate.
