Eid Mubarak to you all. As we are heading towards the end of Ramadan and commencing our BMS educational activities soon, I would like to take the opportunity to give an update on our planned educational activities on behalf of the Education Subcommittee.
1. Information day for AMCIANs – 29th May Saturday 9AM
- This will include CV writings as well as application and interview skills. This was very popular to AMCIANs from the last few year’s feedback.
- Due to the unprecedented and unpredictable COVID situation in NSW, we couldn’t proceed to do a full day face to face MOCK interviews with candidates, but we will conduct a model interview on the 29th May
- There will be an Information sessions on diverse pathways to enter the workforce.
2. Midweek Webinar – we appreciated the feedback from the last EC meeting. As you may understand, webinar topic ideas were planned and communicated with speakers beforehand, on that note, the 26th May Wednesday webinar is on the management of thromboembolism & anticoagulants with two speakers. As such, we plan to have a trial of longer hours (1.5 hrs) this time around. If it is found to be onerous, we focus on one topic for the subsequent webinars. Regarding the change of day, the “Midweek Webinar” was been announced after we moved it from Fridays to Wednesday. We feel that If we keep changing the day and time, it will appear inconsistent and lose it’s credibility. Hence we will keep the same day and structure the webinar program timing to accommodate individual requests.
3. AMC Mock examination – we received feedback from AMCIANs who sat the recent clinical examination via an online platform. We are planning to conduct a mock examination on 19th June Saturday. I would like to request all our valuable EC / Advisory and benevolent members to volunteer as examiners/role player on Mock exam day on 19th June.
Finally, as you may appreciate, we are living in an unprecedented situation. Within this limitation we are trying our best to deliver our members diverse educational activities.
We appreciate your participation and assistance in all activities to make the rest of the educational programs of BMS of NSW 2020-21 a success.

Welcome to Bangladesh Medical Society of NSW
BMS is proudly involved in academic, scientific, and cultural programs throughout the year. Our regular once a year scientific seminar is aimed to help our doctors maintain a high standard of knowledge. Additionally, we support the AMC doctors by organizing training programs, which prepare doctors for the AMC examination and subsequently getting a job in the Australian healthcare system.
In addition to providing social events, we conduct charity here in Australia as well as overseas. We had supported the victims of the Rana Plaza disaster through donating to the Centre for Rehabilitation for Paralysis (CRP). We also took part in the Aila Project, a water purification project, in Bangladesh. Additionally, we made donations to support the victims of the Nepal Earthquake.
Please join the BMS and take part in decision-making and share your views in order to further improve this organization.
