Speaking to students, their parents & faculty in the convocation, he stressed the practice of medicine is perfect culmination of art, science and a dosage of empathy.
Dr. Reddy highlighted that human life expectancy is largely dependent on timely immunisation, accessibility to clean drinking water, basic sanitary facilities, education, economic empowerment and the impact of modern hi-tech medicine has very little effect on humans how long they live.
He advised young medicos to remain humble, display empathy and demonstrate great respect to patients. Your convincing, caring words, your gentle touch act as a super pain reliver to most of the patients shared Dr. Reddy. You may be out of medical college but learning is a continuous process and you must catch-up with the recent advancements in medical technology.
A medico will transform from good doctor to great doctor if he develops skills, attitude and has quest for knowledge. Ultimate success is derived from sweat, determination and hard work. He urged the young pass outs to develop impeccable communication skills and explain complex medical terminologies in simple lucid language to the patients and their attenders.
Your parents have made great sacrifices for your education remember their tireless effort in shaping your future. He called on young graduates to visit your alma mater and show respect to your teachers.
