The School of Medicine opened its doors to the first batch of intrepid students in 1985, which means we have been around for thirty plus years, however still growing, still creating and nurturing our own traditions, still finding our way in an increasingly fast-paced and ever changing world.
Simultaneously, the School of Medicine continues to strive to provide an education of the highest standards imaginable.
You enter with the burden of your own expectations and the expectations of your loved ones. Concomitant with expectations comes responsibility; the responsibility to exert your best effort in pursuit of what must be a special dream.
I urge you to get to know and understand the Vision and Mission of your school. Discuss their implications and messages with your collegues and staff. Strive to uphold the ethical and social tenets of these guiding statements.
Most of all, HAVE FUN as you navigate the sometimes turbulent but exciting world of medicine.
Have an enjoyable 5 years!!!!!
Dr. Ronald Aaron, MD
