(APP): Punjab Governor Chaudhry Muhammad Sarwar on Wednesday said that Pakistan was producing fully competent, qualified, dedicated and committed medical graduates who were capable to serve anywhere in the country and abroad.
Addressing the 1st annual convocation of Faisalabad Medical University (FMU), he said the government was taking revolutionary steps to improve the quality of professional education so that passed-out students could serve ailing humanity with a renewed passion.
He underlined the importance of medical education and said that newly passed out doctors would have to serve the community not only to earn their livelihood but also to please Allah Almighty.
He hoped the students should not only progress in their practical life but also make their parents proud of their unmatched services for the poor and deprived segments of the society.
He said the new doctors must share their experience and knowledge with others so that we could expand the canvas of the health delivery system upto the far-flung areas.
He said the university was first created as Faisalabad Medical University in order to officially rename it as Punjab Medical University Faisalabad and in this connection amendment in the act would soon be made.
Earlier, the governor decorated top position holder students with gold medals and commendation certificates in addition to distributing degrees and shields.
He also took oath from passed out doctors that they would serve the people without any prejudice.
