During the 2-3 weeks internship, interns in groups of 6-8 interns go for clinical rotations, observing health care professionals and areas in different clinical and administrative departments, in a health care setting.
They undergo first aid Training, arranged by Nur Center for Research and Policy, getting equipped with basic knowledge of handling emergency situations. Basic life support (BLS) is the level of medical care which is used for patients with life-threatening illnesses or injuries until the patient can be given full medical care at a hospital.
All interns enrolled in any of the internship program at NUR – FMS are given equal opportunity to participate in various activities which take place as to cater to the objective of giving back to the community. Involving interns and holding a bake sale is a way to pass down values. Through this activity interns share something sweet or salty and learn the act of giving back to the community.
Together with NUR Community Outreach Program, our networking partners, we’ve led over 100 of visits to the community schools, Community Health Center and Vocational Training Center. Over 2000 students have visited the intervention area and provided services such as adopt a child (financial contribution or education), Food Donation Camps, Nutrition Camps, written case studies on the students present in the non-formal schools to understand their problems and develop empathy. Voicing community concerns, supporting relevant research or ongoing awareness-raising around the issues faced by residents and many other activities useful to bridge the gap amongst the members from two parts of the society.
As social beings, we cannot exist without communication. We need to interact with people around us, to make sense of the world and to position ourselves in a wider social and cultural reality. We look at how and why communication evolved and reflect on today’s dominant paradigms. It is important for all the interns to learn and understand general verbal and non-verbal communication which would prove essential in their daily professional and personal lives.
Psychology is the study of people’s behavior, performance, and mental operations. It also refers to the application of the knowledge, which can be used to understand events, treat mental health issues, and improve education, employment, and relationships. Psychology is central to various fields of study which governs our attitudes and behaviors. In general psychology lectures these students learn who and what they are and looks into why they act and think the way they do and how someone can improve himself or herself. It facilitate these young leaders to identify their personalities and how to overcome any psychological barrier and anxiety they might face during their careers.
The purpose of the Introduction to Leadership Skills is to teach youth with leadership positions about their existing and new roles and how to most effectively reach success. These sessions are intended to help youth in leadership positions understand their responsibilities and to equip them with skills to fulfill those responsibilities. Leadership involves three things the leader, the follower and the situation. The leader should be capable of influencing the behavior of followers for attainment of desired objectives. Although it is true that some people are born with greater natural gifts than others, the ability to lead is really a collection of skills, nearly all of which can be learned and improved, but that process doesn’t happen overnight. We at NSLP try to impart the generally required skills present in a leader and to begin their journey as a catalyst of change in the society.
In the world we live today is all packed and being sold. Marketing is more than just advertising a product. It’s more than a trademark; it is how you present yourself online and offline to potential clients and customers. Your personal brand builds business, but it still centers person as an individual. We impart the concept of personal branding amongst our student body which clarifies that it is not about selling. It’s about making yourself available to others, both clients and peers.
Special lectures on Importance of Dental Hygiene were organized with help of Dental Department at Fatima Memorial Hospital. Dr. Faisal Izhar took time out of his schedule and delivered a very helpful lecture on the need of maintaining dental hygiene and myths that we generally believe.
All days during the internship begin with self-exploring and motivational training, which facilitated the students to come out of their boxes to work on their public speaking skill which eventually enhance their confidence.
