Graduate 2015
MESSAGE FROM THE VICE CHANCELLOR
Professor Nigel Healey

VC1Bula! University’s alumni are its most important stakeholders. As a university, we are judged on the quality of the graduates we produce and on the contribution our alumni make to business, government and society. In turn, the value of a degree or diploma on a graduate’s curriculum vitae depends critically on the reputation of the awarding university. There is a symbiotic relationship between a university and its alumni – if one is successful, the glitter rubs off on the other; and vice versa.
Here at Fiji National University, we are proud of the achievements of our many thousands of alumni. In turn, we aspire to make you, our alumni, proud of your alma mater. Our university dates back to 1885, when Suva Medical School was founded. Today Fiji National University enjoys a unique place in the landscape of Pacific tertiary education. As a ‘dual sector university’, FNU offers both technical and vocational education and training (TVET) and higher education from diplomas through to doctorates.In addition, FNU is home to the National Training & Productivity Centre (NTPC), which provides in-service training for employees, so that they can continually upgrade their skills and qualifications.

MESSAGE FROM THE ALUMNI ASSOCIATION PRESIDENT
Mr. Netani Sukanaivalu '71, Honorary Alumni Award Recipient 2015

alumni president 2016

Greetings from the President’s desk!
I am deeply humbled to welcome you to the New Year as your President. It is indeed an honour and a privilege to be serving a robust organisation that looks after the Alumni affairs of the Nation’s largest University. Fiji National University continues to leap towards being the best tertiary education provider locally and internationally.
The FNU Alumni Association is committed towards fulfilling the aspirations of the University by engaging our Alumni in various ways. The year 2016 was a success in its own way and the highlight of the year was the Alumni Homecoming Event. In addition to that, there were many projects initiated to support the Association and also our students as highlighted in the Annual Report.
This year we undertake to make the Alumni Homecoming Event bigger and better by improving on its duration, activity and timing. Furthermore, the Alumni Association is determined to complete all pending projects especially those which are directly going to support our student learning outcomes.

Gyan PrasadDr. Gyan Prasad graduated from Fiji National University with MBBS in 2008. He currently works as a lecturer at the Umanand Prasad School of Medicine at the University of Fiji in Lautoka. While studying at FSM (now College of Medicine, Nursing & Health Sciences), he realized that learning in the medical field never stops and his ambition was to be forever involved in self-learning as it is good for one’s own growth and it made him a better doctor as well.

His aim was to prove that everything is achievable if one has put their mind to it. Some of the highlights of his career have been; being a Medical officer at Newcrest Mining Fiji Limited, his involvement with Fiji Police Form, RFMF and Peace Corps, being a lecturer at University of Fiji and attaining a Certification in Occupational Medicine from Monash University in Melbourne, Australia.

Dr. Prasad’s most memorable moment as a student was the feeling of realization that one is only as good as the competition is. He is thankful to his classmates for providing that high level of competition and making him aware of self-deficiencies which helped him determine ways to go about improving himself. His greatest achievement while studying at FNU was his MBBS Degree without which he would not be where he is today. While at FNU, he also mastered the ability to relate to people who make him a better person and a better physician and facilitator.

Dr. Prasad’s advice to current students of FNU is instead of reading the same thing from different medical texts, students should find one good textbook that they like reading and stick to it. By the end of 6 years, students will master that book. His advice for future students is to study hard since there is no other way to success. The only way to make a difference is by not following the crowd. In the end, it is the difference students make that counts.
