The Medical and Dental Council of Nigeria has said that graduates of the Ladoke Akintola University of Technology College of Health Sciences can compete favourably with their counterparts across the world.
The MDCN Registrar, Dr. Abdulmumini Ibrahim, said this in Osogbo on Monday at the induction of 55 medical doctors produced by the college.
The Head of Medical Registration, MDCN, Dr. Victor Gbenro, who represented Ibrahim on the occasion, however, warned the fresh doctors against violating the ethics of the profession.
He said, “As you would be taking the physicians’ oath and given licence to practice, I implore you all to imbibe the culture of right practice and conduct throughout your practice to safeguard the lives of patients and maintain the integrity of our noble profession.
“To your institution and teachers, who have created the enabling environment for your learning and have taught you the act of medicine, I say ‘Well done.’ And do not relent in your efforts at striving to produce the best doctors for our dear country.
“I know for sure that your students can compete favourably with their counterparts anywhere in the world today.”
The LAUTECH Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Adeniyi Gbadegesin, while congratulating the fresh doctors, advised them to continue to be good ambassadors of the institution.
Urging them to maintain high ethical standard, the VC also advised them to use their training for the betterment of humanity
A lecturer at the Department of Community Health and Primary Health Care, Lagos State University College of Medicine, Prof. Olumuyiwa Odusanya, in a lecture on the occasion, challenged doctors to continue to improve themselves.
According to him, any doctor who stops reading and learning will become outdated and unproductive.
