On October 24, 2020, the Medical Education Committee (MECO) MMSA UMY collaborated with Medical student organizations in UMY namely HMPD SEMAKU, MARS, and TBM Alert to celebrate National Doctor’s Day which was held from the 22nd 24, 25 September and 8 November 2020 with a series of radio broadcast, Podcast recording, short video production and webinars. The theme raised on this year’s National Doctors Day is “Dear Doctor, Thank you for Serving”. The purpose of holding these activities is giving appreciation to all doctors in Indonesia for their services in building national health and gained some enthusiasm for medical students as a future doctor candidate.
The profession of a doctor is a very precious profession. Because it has a big role and responsibility in improving national health, especially in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic. However, it seems that many people don’t care about doctor’s struggles in dealing with COVID-19 as evidenced by the habits of many people who don’t obey the health protocol during the COVID-19 pandemic. Because of this, on October 22, MECO MMSA UMY and Medical Student Organization UMY in collaboration with Radio Jogja Family carried out a radio broadcast with “Doctor’s Struggles in the Middle of Pandemic”. The goal of this activity is to found about doctors’ struggles during a pandemic. The target of this radio broadcast are the people in Yogyakarta.
On October 24, the day of the National Doctors Day (HDN) celebration, we published posters as a form of HDN celebration through Instagram stories. Continued on October 25, 2020, we also publish a podcast with the topic “The Role of Medical Students in the Middle of the COVID-19 Pandemic”. And hoping that medical students will realize that they have a role for helping the problem of this pandemic.
