Rector of Unimed Dr. Syamsul Gultom., SKM., M.Kes heard the happy news congratulating and giving appreciation for the achievements of Unimed students obtained. “We are very proud of the achievements of students who won silver and bronze at PIMNAS 33. We know that the struggle to get proposals made to enter PIMNAS is very difficult and difficult. But the whole struggle is now reciprocated by the achievement. PIMNAS this year is very different from the previous year PIMNAS where PIMNAS this year was held online this is because our country is facing a coronavirus pandemic. But this does not prevent the students’ younger siblings to continue to work and innovate. This is proven by UNIMED students who still succeed in achieving achievements in PIMNAS. This victory is the result of the efforts of innovative thinking of the students and of course also the supervisors who patiently and sincerely guide the students so that finally the guided team can achieve 2 silver 1 bronze,” said Rector when interviewed by phone.
“To the team who have not succeeded do not be discouraged because for us you are also winners because your proposal has been successfully penetrated into PIMNAS. This has become a pride in itself. Keep up the spirit and keep working. I also thanked other UNIMED students. Hopefully with the achievements achieved by your friends can develop a sense of innovation and creativity in creating a work that can help solve the nation’s problems. We hope that in PIMNAS next year we should be able to achieve more, we maximize the top 10 nationally,” said Dr. Syamsul.
