Dr. Katsufrakis states that science is fundamental to the practice of medicine

Manipal: The curtains came on Sunday at the 3-day 28th e-convocation of the Manipal Academy of Higher Education (MAHE). The Chairman and CEO of the National Board of Medical Examiners (NBME), Drs. Peter J. Katsufrakis, who addressed the recently graduated students, hoped that they would remember the lesson that the epidemic has taught us and remember that science is fundamental to medical practice.

Dr. Katsufrakis said, “So when you will be completing your medical education, the reality is that you will remain a student – a student of medicine and a student of science – for the rest of your career. But that is not a burden. It is a burden for you. The region has the opportunity to participate in the advancement of mankind. ”He advised the students to speak the truth, advocate science and advocate their patients.

Advising them to be flexible, he said that this is to lift ourselves up when, despite our best efforts, patients do not achieve the results we would expect when we face other challenges in our professional lives. Where things cannot happen in our personal lives, we need the flexibility to stand up and strive to do the necessary work, Drs. Katsufrakis said and congratulated all the students who graduated on the day.

Pro-VC of Mangaluru Campus Dr. CS Thammaiya said, “You live in an era where the pace of technology transition is growing at the speed of mind. Even as I speak, new concepts are being introduced, established paradigms are being refined, and research is opening up new expansions. Change driven by path breaking research is both exhilarating and mesmerizing. As young graduates, this will be your challenge. ”
