2018 AUSMUN CONFERENCE

14 Mar 2018:

From the 8th-10th of February 2018, a delegation of 12 students from Dubai Medical University took part in the 3-day AUSMUN Conference annually held at the American University of Sharjah. All participants from DMC represented the Republic of Cuba and defended the Cuban point of view in their respective committees.

Model United Nations (MUN) is an international society aimed at improving the research, oratory and speech writing skills of students throughout the world. The AUSMUN Conference provided the perfect platform for DMC students to enhance these skills. Students had a month to research the topics in their assigned rooms and their country’s stance on the same topic and presented their research in the strictly formatted Position Paper. It is believed that the work involved in writing up this paper adequately prepares the student to then go on and form resolutions on the issues being discussed at the conference. Students from Dubai Medical University accomplished that. They took on the roles of Cuban delegates, defending Cuba’s point of view in a variety of topics ranging from Military Drones to Family Planning.

Of the delegation of 12 students representing DMC, one of the students, Hind Alhalyan, was a moderator in the World Food Programme committee. She overlooked the debate in this committee and ensured delegates followed MUN protocol Over the 3 days, students participated in 6 sessions overall in which they debated for or against resolutions to tackle the global issue at hand.

The Conference concluded with a Gala dinner and Closing Ceremony on the evening of the 10th of February 2018. Two DMC students, namely Sumayya Ismail and Rihab Farooq were awarded the Best Research and Best Speaker awards respectively. All participants are congratulated for their sterling efforts.
