What Is It With Fecamds?
Kennedy O Obohwemu

   Federation of Catholic Medical and Dental Students(FECAMDS) is an
organisation known across the shores of Nigeria.It is one which includes
all Health trainees.The membership strength is great,but active
participation is not encouraging.The fact that one is a Catholic
who is aspiring to work in the health sector and is ready to obey
the rules and regulation governing the organisation is an automatic
ticket to joining the organisation.If we see it like a tree,then we
will see that some branches bear a lot of fruit,some a little fruit,
and some no fruit.Time tells it all.
   Medical and Dental students have special needs the are distinct from
the generality of tertiary students.Tertiary students generally have
been recognised by the Church as in need of a ministry distinct from other
youths who are already in the workforce,earning some money,etc.Different
'gatherings of the faithful' exist in our campuses,but has been
spefically designed for the Medical or Dental student.Yes,Nigeria
Fellowship of Catholic Students(NFCS)exists,but we all know it is not
specific for the said group.They are no doubt a peculiar breed.
   First,they are quarantined from the generality of students,they are
a people set apart from the main campus.Thus physically,it is difficult
for them to attand NFCF meetings.
   Second,MedIcal and Dental students prepare themselves to deal with
human suffering in a very practical way.No other student will ever face
as much physical suffering as these do.So what?So when you deal with
the physical pain of others,you must begin to ask questions:Where is
God for this person?How can a good ,loving and caring God not intervene
in this fellow's life?And how about the talk of death?Why do people have
to die?Why now?What happens next?
   These philosophical questions,with some spiritual inclinations,come
up eventually for all involved in the profession of human health care.
FECAMDS exists to help catholic Medical and Dental students deal with
these questions durind studies before actually facing the crisis in
professional work.
    The Church has faced these perennial questions before and has some
acquired and revealed wisdom to guide the neophytes.And she recognises
the struggle those in the profession are facing.
     For the sudent aspiring for greater heights,the Church would want
him/her to walk side by side with his/her Muslim colleague,with all
purity of mind and purpose of heart.How can the sudent conduct
himself/herself in the midst of an emergency?These questions are as
real as the stars.It is because of the reality of it all that makes
FECAMDS what it is-a rightful place for Medical and Dental students.
   FECAMDS is built on citadel that never collapses,a motive an ovation
can never commensurate.It is an action that is worth performing,an idea
worth actualising.An experience never to be forgatten,lingering on as
the transcending of life occurs.It is a force to be reckoned with.
   Let the light shine on,for so it must.
   FECAMDS in CHRIST!We heal the sick!


                                       Obohwemu O.Kennedy,
                                       Medicine & Surgery,
                                       DELSU,Abraka.
