Medicos should consider the profession as a service to humanity, not as a money-spinning occupation, said R Venkatakrishnan, said the retired professor of Orthopaedic Surgery and Traumatology in  Madurai Medical College. He said this while delivering the fourth convocation address at Vellore Government Medical College on Friday.

Handing over graduate certificates to 99 students on the occasion, Venkatakrishnan said that medicos should focus on treating the patients and saving lives. ‘The more you learn in the college and continue to learn, the more the career would sustain you’ he told them. The retired professor urged the medical students to have a focused approach if they are interested to continue higher education. ‘If you are planning for post graduation, postpone your marriage’ he advised them.

Venkatakrishnan told the graduates to be accessible to patients and be responsible in  clearing their doubts.

“Always think of the best treatment options and always render personalised treatment with compassion and support. Ensure your patients left your clinic with a friendly, healthy smile,” he further said.

College Dean Dr L D Thulasiram, Medical Superintendent Dr E Sivakumar, vice-principal Dr R Muthulakshmi and Resident Medical Officer Dr P Arunan also spoke.
