Dr. Yazan Demaidi – UK- 2023

As part of its professional development program, FQMS provided partial financial support to Dr. Yazan for his attendance at the AMEE 2023 Conference (An International Association for Medical Education) in Glasgow, United Kingdom, between 27-30 August 2023. Check out his testimonial and photos below. 


“The opportunity to attend the AMEE23 Conference was a dream come true for me. As a medical student from Palestine, I have always been passionate about medical education and its role in improving healthcare outcomes, particularly in regions facing numerous challenges like my homeland. Your support allowed me to turn this passion into reality by participating in a conference of global significance.

Presenting my abstract on the “IFMSA Professional Exchange Program – Outcome Evaluation and Impact Assessment” at AMEE23 was a pivotal moment in my academic journey. This abstract represented countless hours of research, dedication, and collaboration with mentors and peers. FQMS’s help made it possible for me to present those ideas and outcomes.

The AMEE23 Conference itself exceeded all my expectations. It was a melting pot of knowledge, innovation, and inspiration. I had the privilege of attending sessions and workshops led by world-renowned experts in medical education. These sessions not only broadened my understanding of the subject but also challenged me to think critically and creatively about the future of medical education, both locally and globally.

Moreover, the networking opportunities at AMEE23 were invaluable. I had the honour of connecting with fellow attendees, speakers, and professionals from diverse backgrounds and countries. These interactions allowed me to exchange ideas, share experiences, and build relationships that I believe will have a lasting impact on my academic and professional journey.

It is evident that the global medical community is dedicated to improving medical education and healthcare systems worldwide. I am grateful for the chance to be a part of this vibrant community.

Your support has not only made a difference in my life but also in the lives of those I hope to serve as a healthcare professional. The knowledge and inspiration I gained at AMEE23 reaffirmed my commitment to addressing healthcare disparities faced by underserved communities, including Palestine. I am more determined than ever to contribute to the advancement of medical education and healthcare in my region, and your support has played a crucial role in shaping this determination.

In closing, I want to express my deepest gratitude to FQMS for making my participation in the AMEE23 Conference possible. Your support has not only enriched my academic and professional journey but also inspired me to continue striving for excellence in medical education and research. I promise to carry the lessons and inspiration gained at AMEE23 forward in my endeavours. I hope to make you proud of the impact your support has had on my life and the lives of those I aim to serve.

Once again, thank you for your unwavering support and belief in my potential.” Yazan
