Yafi Rushan Rusli who is now serving at one of the government-owned hospitals in his homeland, Blitar, East Java.
Interviewed by UNAIR NEWS, the doctor who took Medicine in 2011 was very grateful to be able to study medicine with the help of bidikmisi.
“I am indeed grateful to be able to study in a large campus with bidikmisi. Now. It’s time for me to serve and repay the services to the nation and the state, “said the doctor known as Yafi.
Asked about experience during dedication, Yafi said that he gained a lot of learning, experience, and knowledge considering the condition of the hospital in the area is very different from RSUD dr. Soetomo where he studied.
“It is clearly more practical here (RS regional, ed) and we have more responsibility,” he said.

At the end, Yafi advised his juniors at UNAIR to study well. Regarding the allowance earned from the government each month, Yafi advised them to manage the finance wisely.
“It all depends on us, it could be enough, depending on our own management. For those who are still S1, study well. When you are in residency you can spare more time to teach, “he explained. “And, do not forget to maintain solidarity with fellow bidikmisi friends,” he concluded.
