To whom it may concern,

My name is Alvin Saputra, I was born on August 27th, 1995 and I am pleased to have the
honor of introducing myself to you. I am currently a fifth year medical student of Faculty of
Medicine, Universitas Airlangga, Surabaya, Indonesia. At my fifth year, I have already passed my first
year as clinical student and still doing my last year here as a young doctor. Besides studying, I still
can spend my time for good back then, contributing in many organization just like CIMSA and AMSA.
I’ve been joining CIMSA (IFMSA named in Indonesia) for two years and mostly I like all of the project
that held by CIMSA UNAIR because all of the project always have a purpose to improve the public
health of Indonesia. So, I want to know other projects that are overseas there and compare it to
Indonesia and after the exchange I will give my knowledge there to improve our health services for
better Indonesia. Accordingly, with this letter I wish to apply for the Professional Exchange Program
held by SCOPE IFMSA estimated in early 2019 to Japan.

I am applying the professional exchange program in Japan because I am very interested in

this program as it offers the chance to experience me the clinical rotation before I have my clinical
year. I want to choose the Obstetric and Gynecology Department because I have a dream become
an obstetrician in my country and my research for my first degree also related with obstetric, it’s
about “The Difference between Intrauterine Growth Restriction Cases based on Lubchenco Score
and Ponderal Index on Newborn Baby with Early and Late Onset Severe Pre-eclampsia in Dr.
Soetomo General Hospital Surabaya.” Moreover, I want to gain a new perspective health care about
obstetric regarding medical problem in a foreign country. Moreover, I want to gain a new
perspective health care about obstetric regarding medical problem in a foreign country. I have a
profound fondness towards Japan which is well known for its rich cultures, world heritages, history,
and natural and architectural beauty. I also have a strong interest in the research center too in
Japan, specifically in Osaka and Tokyo. Knowing that until today Japan in the number one country
in all over Asia for their health care and the research about health issue problem, because all of that
these are the reasons why I choose Japan as my first choice for this Professional exchange.
During this exchange, I’m planning on participating actively in this program and consult as
much as I can with the professors and doctors who regarding medical care there. And I want to
know as much as I can about the obstetric problem across Asia because they call that “Experience
is the best teacher”, so I want to get as much experience as I can so I can have a good quality to be
a professional doctor in the future. Through this exchange too, I believe I can gain meaningful
experiences as well as a great deal of knowledge in the medical as well as sociocultural aspects of
Japan specially Osaka and Tokyo. These knowledge and experiences are what I'm planning to bring
back and implement in Indonesia if possible. I’m also planning on establishing good professional
relationships with my colleagues and professors during this exchange program with hope that these
good relation will be beneficial for me in the future. The end of word, I am a hardworking, talkative,
easy to make new friends and well-organized person and I enjoy working as a part of a team or
individually. That is why I deserve to be chosen for this professional exchange program.

I enclose herewith my CV for your further consideration and should you require any further
information, please do not hesitate to contact me. Thank you for your kind attention and I look
