Candidature Presentation for Secretary General Position 2011

  1. 1. Candidature Letter for Secretary General 2011/2012 Page 1 CANDIDATURE LETTER FOR SECRETARY GENERAL 2011/2012 EMSA GENERAL ASSEMBLY 1-4 SEPTEMBER 2011- LEIDEN Dear EMSA members, Thousands of words can be written about my enthusiasm to EMSA but I want to keep it short… I believe the time and energy devoted in organisations like EMSA gives a three-fold reward: you have good time, you make friends for life and it certainly does not harm your professional career later on the contrary makes better. This is a good reason why I decided to continue in EMSA- Europe. So lets continue to make friends for life with EMSA! ABOUT ME I was born in Istanbul, where traditional Middle East and Modern Europe overlap, on 28th of December 1986. I graduated from Batman Science High School and the field that I graduated in was totally based on science. Since my primary school years, I have preferred a life style which covers both the social aspects and responsibilities of the life. In my younger years, I acquired my work discipline and realized the effectiveness of being a team during my football career. I played football, both school and amateur teams, between 1995-2003. At the same time I was interested in political issues and the problems of society as a young student with full of diligence and enthusiasm.Therefore, I started to work in non-governmental organisations as a volunteer. I spent my high school years dealing with science. I did scientific studies within a team and I gave some scientific conferences at that time. One of the most important of them was in 2002 and it was about “superconductors”. With this conference, I took the attention of the press and I was rewarded with two national awards. In 2005, I started my undergraduate study at the medical school of Yeditepe University as a prep-school student. I continued my scientific studies in here too. I worked in laboratories of diverse fields and got involved with the publication of some scientific papers. And this year, I will start my 5th of year in medicine.
  2. 2. Candidature Letter for Secretary General 2011/2012 Page 2 ABOUT NEXT YEAR EMSA is expanding in Europe day by day within the responsibility of being European medical students' voice. For this meaningful aim, EMSA makes new magnificent events come true. From now on, 18 international EMSA events happen annually. For students who become active in international level, EMSA is going to make these meetings and projects more efficient with the help of professional support by EMSA Europe. There will be also a general promotional program which will make possibly to FMOs promote their events sufficiently. Last GAs showned us that the FMOs are on a satisfactory level about promoting, but with still a lot of work in need to be done in as soon as possible. We all want the synergy effect of 1+1=2 to appear in the EMSA and working with members directly, we can truly reach our goals together and continue to contribute to the EMSA more and more. Here below list you can see annual EMSA events. Next year, I will contact with all related FMOs and we will try to make events more efficient and attractive. MEETINGS 1. OFFICIAL MEETINGS I. General Assembly II. National Coordinators and Enthusiasts Meeting III. European Medical Students’ Council 2. MEETINGS ORGANIZING BY FMOs a. Events/Scientific Congress i.

  3. 3. Candidature Letter for Secretary General 2011/2012 Page 3 3. EVENTS/MEETINGS WITH PARTNER ORGANIZATIONS I. Bologna Process Follow-up Workshop II. World Health Students’ Symposium III. International Students Congress of Medical Sciences IV. Network of European Medical Students’ Conferences V. European Students’ Conference VI. Leadership Summer School There is several factors that shape EMSA’s today and future. And EMSA meetings are one of important of the these factors. Insouciance of members to meetings are because of lack of professional support is indeed a big problem for many FMOs. This of course has significant effect on recognition of EMSA. EMSA needs to search for new ways to find solutions... We should keep in mind that the EMSA-Europe needs to be in a proper contact with FMOs in order to increase the quality, attractiveness and internationalization of EMSA events. It is impossible to achieve innovative and creative solutions and to build up a sustainable and safe events/congress without collaborating organizing committee of these FMOs. To increase the number, quality and awareness of evets in EMSA, a guide for organizing commitee, which includes such information as what are the steps to organise an event, what skills necessarry for members for which type of events, possible funding sources and how to set up a strategy on national and local level, will be prepared by me. EMSA needs to set its standards very high when organising events. In general, the events are organised by organising committees at the universities where the tasks are divided after individual knowledge, motivation and experience. To secure the quality of the EMSA events, we need to constructe a guideline on how an organising committee should and could organise events in a high quality level. These guidelines also give the organising committees basic knowledge on how to actually organise an event step by step. The other solution that I want to carry out next year is creating an “EMSA Events” webpage. With this webpage, members will follow all local and international events from this website. Besides that, they could post and edit their events from this website directly.

Increase the internal communication within EMSA as an organisation. 10. Maintenance of the EMSA Statutes and Internal Rules SPECIFIC TASKS One step: Increase recognition of EMSA within International Organizations EMSA has gained a good name and reputation in the international associations. EMSA is known especially in the European organisations and institutions and still makes them aware of the fact that in case they are looking for a partner among students’ organisations for co-operation, EMSA is there to rely on. The co-operation between international organisations and institutions and NGOs such as EMSA is based on the exchange of information. From our perspective, EMSA should always be informed about the programmes and projects of international organisations and institutions in which it is relevant and important for EMSA to actively participate. From the other perspective, it is equally important that EMSA informs the international organisations and institutions about its programmes and projects. Representing EMSA between these associations is an important matter all time. EMSA is young! And it becomes really important to benefit from experience EMSAi, especially meeting or conferences that EMSA send representative. There are several meetings that we create students taskforce and send them to conferences/meetings such as AMEE Conference, MEDINE2 Meetings, HIA-Europe, and WHSS.
  5. 5. Candidature Letter for Secretary General 2011/2012 Page 5 One of the my aim to contribute to EMSA ,as Executive Board member, for next year will be try to focus on these subject “as a team”. With directors or liasion officers, I believe that we will create a new and sustainable structure in this field. FINAL WORDS EMSA’s future is defined by the people in it, by the history we have, and by the activities we are organising. Skilled and open-minded people create the platform of the present generation. It is true, but they become such by participating in various activities, by organising events, by communicating with their colleagues in different countries and by participating in trainings. Kevin Murphy once wrote - learning that produces no change is about as useful as a parachute that doesn’t open. I know that and this is why I believe it was worth it after all stress and bore I felt this year. I am proud that EMSA was a part of my live and I was a part of EMSA’s life. EMSA is one of the things I will proud all time! Hurrah for EMSA  Last year, I wrote in my candidature: “I may be new in EMSA but I am excited and hungry to achieve great jobs...” .And now, I am still excited and hungry but this time I am also more experience  Süleyman Yıldız EMSA-Yeditepe President 2009-2011 Medical Education Director of EMSA Europe 2010/2011
