It was all smiles and celebration as the College of Medical Sciences, University of Calabar held her 39th physicians oath taking ceremony at the Unical international conference center yesterday.
This is coming barely three months after another set of fifty new doctors from the university were also inducted in the 38th physicians oath taking ceremony on May 5, 2014.
Dr. Ogban O. Okpoti (Director of Medical Services, Cross River State) while administering the physician’s oath on behalf of the Registrar, Medical and Dental Council of Nigeria (MDCN) urged the “new doctors” to begin to take responsibilities for their actions and the consequences of those actions.
Earlier, the spocio academic lecturer Prof. Rowland Ndoma-Egba, while delivering a lecture on the topic “the equation of life”, told the doctors to respect the Hippocratic oath that encourages duty to teachers, duty to patient, respect for privacy among others.
He said: “Doctors should have respect for patients, integrity, humility, fidelity, courage, justice, patience, modesty, simplicity, temperance. They should be team players, have good communication skills, dress decently and should be able to connect positively with his patients”
High point of the event was the presentation of prizes to the best graduating student to Dr. Muriel Imaobong Inyang by the Dr. Bassey Kubiangha Education Foundation, Samuel and Isabella Inyang Foundation and the provost of the faculty.
