90 students receive degrees at MIMS convocation Vizianagaram: Andhra University Vice-Chancellor Prof. Suryanarayana Raju suggested to the students who received their MBBS degrees that they should not confine themselves to degrees but carry out research and experiments. Because of changing food habits and changes in the environment, new diseases are cropping up. If experiments are conducted on these, the students could get world-wide recognition," he said. He was the chief guest at the convocation of the Maharaja Institute of Medical Studies (MIMS) here on Wednesday. Stating that the medical profession was a sacred one, Prof. Raju said doctors were worshipped as Gods. He hoped that the students would do justice to the people with whose money they had studied the course. They would earn good reputation through relentless services, he said. They must reassure the patient and remove his anxiety. Then they should prescribe the right medicine, he said. He urged them to take the advice of the senior members, follow it and come up as good doctors. MBBS alone is not enough and one must do PG as well as specialisation, he said. As the number of strange diseases is growing, in order to treat them, the doctors should keep themselves updated, he said. Along with experimenting on new issues they should find solutions to them, he said. By improving upon the quality of research opportunities will come searching for them, he added. Medical College chairman Alluri Murthy Raju said that the only way to come up as doctors is to give life to the critically ill persons. By serving the people, the doctors would not only earn a good reputation but would add to the prestige of the institution, he said. For those who are coming to us in an anxious way, doctors who speak in a pleasant manner and treat them well will be worshipped, he revealed, with many examples. They should reach new heights in the profession and keep up the prestige of the college, he said. Later, 90 MBBS students who completed their course were given degrees. College Dean Narayana Raju, Hospital Superintendent Akkalanaidu and others participated.
