The University of Ilorin, UNILORIN has inducted 48 new medical doctors.
The new entrants into the medical profession were charged to comply with the code of ethics guiding the profession.
The Medical and Dental Council of Nigeria (MDCN) administered the Hippocratic Oath on the new doctors at the solemn event attended by parents and well-wishers at the university auditorium.
The registrar of the council, Dr AbdulMumeen Ibrahim, represented by Director, Kwara State Hospital Services, Dr Zinat Saadu, urged the doctors to acquaint themselves with the code of ethics and abide by its provisions. The MDCN boss said, “Your profession is service to humanity… above all, in whatever you do, whatever you say, say so with honour and dignity. In life, it is not how much money you make that matters; it is not how much connection you have that matters, it is not even how many degrees you earn that matters, but what matters ultimately, is what happiness you have given to the next person.”
Addressing the new doctors, the Coordinator of the Unilorin Medical Graduands Association, Prof. A. Fawole, enjoined them as alumni of the institution, to join in making the better by far University better.
