WELCOME TO THE DEPARTMENT OF SURGERY

 

 Dear Student,

 It is our pleasure on behalf of the Department of Surgery to welcome you at the start of your course and wish you the best of luck with your studies. 

It is our duty to see that the time is well spent and the course objectives are fully satisfied.  We have found the study of Surgery to be fascinating as well as gratifying.  We wish you experience the same feeling.

Medical students are distinguished from students of other scientific studies by dealing with the human beings.  When entering the medical college, students are very enthusiastic to reach this point.

Teaching in medicine is the result of the collaboration of the students and the teacher.  The medical students will stimulate the teacher to give more general information theoretically and gain more cooperation and hence confer better understandings.

We look forward to both teachers and the student of this course a very fruitful period of their life.
