Welcome to the University of Guyana School of Medicine and congratulations on being accepted to read for your MBBS degree. The medical training that you will receive is on par with what is received by other institutions within the Caribbean region and around the world. It is up to you to work hard in order to succeed. But while you work hard, remember to play hard too....medical school burn out is real. Remember you have your lecturers and colleagues from the senior years to assist whenever necessary. But I would like you to realize that while the academic lessons you will learn are important, the non-academic ones are even more valuable and will make you a great doctor. Learn to be humble, willing to serve others, respectful, caring and compassionate and it will make your journey even more rewarding.

All the best!
