'Feels like home'. That is how our students describe their feelings on staying at UniKL RCMP

A total of twenty-three MBBS, Year 2 students and Foundation in Medical Science students from University of Kuala Lumpur (UniKL) Royal College of Medicine Perak together with 15 facilitators from among the UniKL lecturers and firefighters successfully participated in a camping activity at Ulu Chepor, Perak.

The camp was organized by the UniKL RCMP Fire Brigade Club over three days and two nights on 14, 15 and 16 December 2018. The objective of the program was to develop soft skills and discipline among medical students. The camp focused on physical and mental strength through such activities as jungle trekking, team-building, water confidence, and sentry guard. Apart from that, there were other activities such as ice-breaking, chain communication, cultural performances, aerobics and the infusion of the ideals of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR).


The advisor of the Fire Brigade Club of UniKL RCMP, Monarusnita Binti Abu Bakar stated that this experience of managing a program and experiencing the way of life in the forest is very meaningful and exciting for the students. Participants gained new experience on the mechanism and usage of fire engines while strengthening the relationship between the university and the Fire and Rescue Department.

According to Nilam Maisarah Kassim, the Coordinator of Foundation in Medical Sciences, it was good exposure and opportunity for the students in terms managing their fears and developing confidence in the water especially in deep and swift waters.  She thanked the dedicated coaches and the Head of House, Senior Assistant Fire Superintendent, TPgB Mohd Subri bin Hussain of the Fire and Rescue Department of Ipoh for their full-hearted involvement in the program. It must be mentioned here that University Kuala Lumpur is the only IPTS actively organizing programs and activities in collaboration with the Fire and Rescue Department.


Most of the participants were excited and happy to go camping with the fire department and take part in activities such as water rescue. The program helped to establish good relationships among the juniors and seniors. The program director, Syarifah Aida Husna bt Syed Hood, a Year 2 medical student, stated that the activity has successfully strengthened the relationship among students and helped them to gain valuable experience especially in pitching tents.

The Deputy Director of Student Development and Campus Lifestyle, Prof. Dr Noorzaid Muhamad, pointed out the uniqueness of UniKL where students are given recognition for activities conducted through GHOCS marks and that this activity is implemented according to the guidelines under SPICES.

The Camp Commander was Pegawai Bomba Kanan II, PBK II Rahman Abdullah and the Assistant Camp Commander was Pegawai Bomba PB Saiful Habtur. The closing ceremony of the camp was officiated by Senior Assistant Fire Superintendent, TPgB Mohd Subri bin Hussain, Head of the Ipoh Fire Station. He thanked the organisers for placing their trust in the Fire Department of Ipoh and for arranging interesting and meaningful activities during the camp. He also mentioned that future activities will be more on survival simulation series which will be more challenging.
