Dr. Christopher A. Reeder, Dean of the UAG School of Medicine, said that the new medical graduates will take the values of the institution to all corners of the world, wherever they practice their profession.
In the same event, Dr. Jorge Luis Martínez Trabal, a graduate of Medicine from UAG, received the “Lic. Antonio Leaño Álvarez del Castillo" Award and acted as the godfather of this generation, taking the opportunity to give a message to the recent graduates.
“Do not forget the care of human life is the reason for our profession. This through preparation, continuous study, empathy, and ethics. Remember that the practice of medicine, although based on science, also has a lot to focus on that patients are human, teamwork and involvement of the community in which one lives. This impacts patients directly and indirectly,” he noted.
The diplomas were then handed to each student as they walked on stage and after they all took the Hippocratic Oath as the new doctors of this generation.
