MHOP is a collaboration between MClub and Muslim Healthcare Professionals Association (MHPA). It reaches out to pre-university students interested in a career in healthcare, and seeks to broaden their knowledge of the range of healthcare fields and support them in their course admissions. 

 

This was the first year that MClub and MHPA collaborated on MHOP, which is already in its sixth year. Our collaboration allowed MHOP to reach out to a wider base of students through MClub’s networks.

AWARENESS BUILDING

The first half of the programme sought to broaden participants’ awareness about the wide range of fields within the healthcare professions, beyond the commonly-known fields of medicine, dentistry and nursing to fields such as podiatry, radiation therapy and occupation therapy. Participants took part in:

  • Talks by healthcare professionals offering insights on their career
  • Sharing by healthcare students on their education journey
  • Question and Answer session with the panellists :

PRACTICAL SUPPORT

Participants also took part in smaller breakout sessions, where they were able to connect directly with professionals and current students in their chosen fields to:

  • Learn more about each faculty/field and the nature of its training
  • Share application processes and interview tips for undergraduate healthcare courses (NUS, NTU, SIT, Overseas)
  • Learn about different scholarships and financial assistance for healthcare courses
