Well, last year it was eventful thanks to the Fukuoka trip. This year, it became eventful because of my graduation.
Yes, I've finally graduated from vet school! Thanks to all readers who have stuck to thick and thin me with throughout the 6 long years, though I'm sure multiple of them have vanished from the blog-o-sphere.
Anyways, time for pictures!
Basically for vet students, our main event for graduation wasn't the scroll retrieval from the Selangor Sultan (yes, we get our scrolls from His Royal Highness); but the Oath Recital Ceremony in the faculty in front of the registrar of Malaysian Veterinary Council.
Similar but different medical graduates taking their Hippocratic Oath, we take our veterinarian oath with main objectives to alleviate pain of our patients, reduce suffering at all times, provide sufficient safe protein source to the country, and protect the safety and health of the general public.
Apart from the oath taking ceremony, our faculty also boasts as the faculty with the most faculty awards to be won. Most faculties hit about 20 prizes max in UPM, but our faculty hits up to 50 faculty prizes to be won by the students from DVM 2 up to post graduates for their hard work in studies.
At least, I left my name on the boards around the faculty foyer. Did I not mention we literally had something like a Hall of Fame in the foyer? Basically award winners each year have their names listed on the boards for each prize won, sponsored by the industry player of the veterinary field in Malaysia.
Until the next post, I will be flying to Bali tomorrow for another workshop on ultrasound. Eventful November it is!
