“Advances in medical sciences, emerging diseases, new technologies and shifting healthcare paradigm demand that you as upcoming physicians, should commit yourself to continuous research and practice that will enable you to be relevant in the field.

“In embracing lifelong learning, it is incumbent upon you to be curious and relentlessly pursue additional knowledge, technique and professional expertise on daily basis to discover more modern and simplified methods of handling cases and placing value to humanity.

“We encourage you to embrace every opportunity to learn, continually develop yourself, and to always keep abreast with modern medical practices. Let me quickly add here that this is one profession that requires you to work in partnership with God Almighty who is the owner and provider of wisdom,” he stated.
