IMU Alumnus is an Emergency Medicine Specialist at Thailand’s Hospital

12 Oct 2015

IMU Alumnus from Thailand, Kasemsuk Yothasamutr, is currently an emergency medicine specialist at Lerdsin Hospital (under the Ministry of Public Health) in Bangkok, Thailand, the hospital where he did his specialist training. He has also attained a Diploma of the Thai Board of Emergency Medicine. Kasemsuk graduated with a medical degree from the International Medical University (IMU) in August 2009. Prior to that, he also graduated with the  BMed Sci (Hons) from the same University. “I had the final OSCE in the middle of June, but before that, I submitted a research paper at the end of last year (2014). I did a small research about CPR education in schoolchildren. I did quite well with the research paper, a lot of this I attributed to the research background I had during the BMed Sci (Hons) programme.” Alumni 1 “In the last couple of months, I had a chance to participate in a number of events. The first one was a mass casualty incident exercise that involved a number of agencies. The scenario was on two underground trains colliding. Since my hospital is responsible for emergency medical service at the place the accident happened, I became the medical commander for this event.” “The other event I had the opportunity to participate was in a medical disaster rally held in the northern part of Thailand. My hospital team combined with teams from other countries compete in this competition. Luckily, two teams from Malaysia (one from Hospital Kuala Lumpur, and the other from Mercy Malaysia) were part of my team. Overall, we did well and scored the first place. So with all the activity mentioned, the sub-specialty that I will go into will be the field of Emergency Medical Services (EMS) and Disaster Medicine. Hopefully by next year, I will find a place to further my education in these fields.”
