The IADS Training Program is being developed in cooperation with International Federation of Medical Students’ Associations, according to the IADS – IFMSA Memorandum of Understanding signed in the year of 2011 in Copenhagen, Denmark. The organizations have agreed to support each other and together to build a program which would train IADS members on personal development skills and management.
The collaboration went deeper on a national level, and it climaxed with a collaboration between IFMSA Egypt and IADS, which resulted in a training session hold by the IFMSA Trainer – Karim Abu Zied during the IADS Midyear Meeting 2012 in Egypt. The Training session’s topic was “Communication skills” and it will be recorded as the first training session hold within IADS.
In April –May 2012, the collaboration went further and IFMSA Egypt who was organizing an IFMSA Regional Training Camp, according to the IADS – IFMSA Egypt agreement, has accepted 2 DSSA representatives to be trained during the camp, and them to become Trainers. Thus Adham el Shorbagy and Ahmed El-helw became the first IADS Trainers. They have taken their role as IADS Trainers very seriously and have already organized Training Sessions on “Fundraising” and “ Conflict Management “in Ismaaleya and Mansora, Egypt during the month of July.
“Train new trainers and sub regional trainings (TNT/SRT) is a unique program designed by students in topics related to the soft skills such as leadership, project management, stress and time management, fundraising, and presentation skills. Soft skills are increasingly becoming the hard skills of today’s work force. It’s just not enough to be highly trained in technical skills, without developing the softer, interpersonal and relationship-building skills that help people to communicate and collaborate effectively.
This program can be very beneficial on both the individual level, for the trainers and trainees; and on the organizational level, for the IADS. On the individual level, soft skills indulge positive energy in human relationship for working in symbiosis and explore infinite capabilities at institutional and doctoral level. On the organizational level, this program will Improve IADS member skills in a variety of fields, Increase the performance of IADS due to improving leadership skills and moreover Increase the benefits that an individual gains from IADS"
Adham el Shorbagy – IADS Trainer, DSSA Secretary General
The future development actions are to create a Committee on Training Education during the IADS 59th Annual Meeting in Romania, and to assign a Training Director to be in charge of it. The new IADS Trainers would take the responsibility to work on the progress of the newly IADS international project.
Within the next year(s) there is hope for more IADS Trainers to emerge within the IADS Countries, and the Program to reach a new stage of development by being able to form independently new IADS Trainers.
The results of the IADS Training sessions might be seen “tomorrow” or on the “day after tomorrow”, through the new generations of IADS members who will prove to be more efficient, and may lead both themselves and IADS to new heights.
