Patron in Chief RSRS

‘’The world is now a global village and it is the time to make research a top priority by the institutions of the country. I believe no institute can progress without research. Research is not only important at the graduate level but at the undergraduate level as well. It gives me pleasure to see the students of Rawalpindi Medical University taking special interest in research and we as office bearers should always provide our full support to the young minds.”

‘’Health research is only cognitive solution to ever growing health issues.  Medical students are future health scientists and are supposed to carry forward the health research legacy. RSRS has high potential to supplement health research capacity & culture among medical students through many collaterals like conducting student’s need based short courses & workshops, holding & facilitating students’ participation in research competitions, setting student’s role in domestic research projects, developing national & international health research linkages, like many others.’’

Introduction of Rawalian Student Research Society

The first ever Rawalian Students’ Research Society (RSRS) was established in March 2014, comprising of a team of motivated and proficient undergraduates of RMC, selected from all the five academic years. About 7-8 members of RSRS have been selected annually by a team of senior faculty members as the ‘core team’ which includes Presidents, Vice presidents, General Secretaries and Publication in Charges, etc., the duties of whom were to coordinate all the activities of undergraduate research proficiently under the direct supervision and guidance of the Principal of RMC, IRF and research unit. Furthermore, the core team of RSRS has been selecting students from each academic year, two research class coordinators who form a bridge between every student and the RSRS and research coordinator of RMC.  The members of RSRS have facilitated their colleagues in all the activities related to research and play a vital role in organizing the student’s research conferences. The RSRS members were trained in research via workshops at research unit and they conveyed this knowledge and skill in research to their colleagues. The Presidents and Vice presidents of RSRS held introductory sessions regarding research, literature review and development of synopsis termed as “Master classes” for each academic year annually. RSRS has organized 7 sessions so far that were attended by more than 1000 students in total.

 

In 2018, due to the overwhelming response of students of Rawalpindi Medical University towards research work, the members of core committee were increased from 8 to 12 i.e., two posts for Chief Coordinators and two for Research Facilitators were added. Executive members from all classes were also selected and were assigned the job of facilitating research groups of their respective classes and making them more familiar with the research methodology.

 

RSRS also organizes an Undergraduate Medical Research Conference “RECON” every year in which students of RMU present their research projects as posters as well as verbally in moderated sessions. Winners of the competition are presented with Gold Medals and Shields. In “Young Researcher’s Forum” organized last year in 2017, more than 65 posters and 10 verbal presentations were put forward by the students of RMU.Rawalian Students’ Research Society has organized 3 Medical Research Competitions (RECON 2016, ‘17 & ‘18) in last three years including 40, 65 and 74 research presentations from RMU respectively. However, in 2018, RECON was organized as National Medical Researchers Forum in which medical students of 72 institutions from across the country were invited to present their research papers. A total of 102 abstracts were accepted for verbal and poster presentations. Rawalian Students’ Research Society also organized 7 workshops for Undergraduate Students regarding research.

 

Student supplement of Journal of Rawalpindi Medical College started in 2015 and is published biannually. It aims to support students in developing their research skills and expanding clinical knowledge by publishing papers based on current practices and new developments in all branches of medicine; describing the public health problems and papers on medical education.
