 Leadership skills 

Fifth year Group Leader:
It was a great experience to be a whole group leader in the last year of my medical school. I learned a lot and improved my leadership skills. During this year, we rotate as a group (80 students) in 3 cycles; Surgery, Pediatrics and Internal medicine. I became way more experienced and competent to work with 3 different departments with different requirements and schedules for each of them. Eventually, I am honoured to receive an appreciation letter from Dr. Bander Al-jafen; Internal medicine course organizer, regarding my work with him as a group leader.
