MAHSA College Open Day


                 MAHSA was well established as MAHSA College in the year of 2005 with a strong belief that a higher education in the field of healthcare was a vital, essential and imperative cog in the development of the nation.

                MAHSA is the brainchild of Professor Datuk Dr. Hj. Mohamed Haniffa who is the Pro-Chancellor and the Executive Chairman of the University College

                The Pro-Chancellor. himself is a clinical practitioner of Medicine and believed in creating qualified, competent and caring healthcare professionals to address the acute shortage of healthcare professionals in Malaysia.

          Last Saturday, with the courtesy of Advertlets and MAHSA College, i along with other Advertlets blogger had the opportunity to attend the once of a life time MAHSA First Aid Workshop. 

Didnt know that i actually get to learn CPR and helping a really lucky male mannequin doing CPR. Interesting isnt it ? 

        It doesn't required much step to learn CPR and First Aid. You would be surprise that by learning these skills, you could actually save a person life. All you need to do is stay clam, check your surrounding and perform the CPR and First Aid.

Josh  performing CPR for the one and only lucky mannequin. Looking good there :).

Here's a snap shoot of all the girls with Jim-the-lucky-mannequin. 

Grouppie picture :)

With the gorgeous Careen Tan :) 

                Besides that , after the CPR and First Aid workshop and lunch, we proceed to the next session which is touring around the campus. It's interesting to see the laboratory and classroom filled with preserved animals and organs part. For me the most interesting room was the dissection hall. 

I found myself in an exciting mood to check out the Cadaver Storage Room where preserved crops is places inside the room. I know, how ironic right, some people would choose not to see but for me i would indeed be the first to volunteer to see :)

This is so ... cool. Instantly amazed when i first saw it in the laboratory . Seeing how babies grow from a  tiny foetus to a well form baby, its really magical. Thats why it caught my attention.

This picture is rather disturbing, looked closely and you can see how they dissect ... the body.

And this was ...woah. getting so close to a .. dead-perserved-arm/lungs , it's pretty mind blowing. At least for me it is. You could actually see the veins , muscle in such a detail form. I have to say , it was a mind blowing experience to be in that campus

                 Therefore, to all the potential doctors and pharmacist that wish to pursue in medical studies, what are you waiting for?
