2, Objectives, To create conductive learning environment. To produce safe medical practitioners in the Surgical Emergency. To produce competent doctors in their chosen field. To train critical thinkers and learners with ability to adopt and adapt new knowledge. Values, Respect of human right of all our patients and their families. Uphold the highest professional and ethical standards. Any intervention should only be in the best interest of the patient. A vibrant and pleasurable training environment, Calling. Our calling is to prevent premature death and to relieve suffering. Our calling is not to abolish death but allow our patients to die with dignity. MOTTO, To Till Our Best Is The Best, Surgeons often have a heavy workload stretching over many hours It is absolutely imperative that a. surgeon s decisions and actions are of such a nature that he will be able on all occasions to give an. account of his actions both to himself his colleagues and the patient Be patient Exercise restraint even in. the face of provocation from colleagues management or patients Irascible and erratic behavior may harm. your patient and certainly will harm working relationships with your colleagues To take out your temper on. instruments or theatre personnel blaming everybody else except yourself is a sign of a personality out of. control , A surgeon always acts under control people are placing their lives in one s hands .
A good doctor is always a good doctor regardless of the circumstances or environment . Circumstances should not influence your being a good doctor They can only influence the extent of your. ability a lack of essentials makes one less effective but not a bad doctor Always strive to be a good doctor . It is by training that the athlete becomes fit , This Department strives to work to the best of its ability There should always be an all out effort to render. the best service to our clients the patients , Paper has a better memory than the keenest brain . Scripta menant verba volant , Please have a little pocket note book ready to jot down those precious pearls that come your way so. frequently and to note what needs done Furthermore all encounters with the patient must be accurately if. only briefly recorded These notes might save our collective bacon when medico legal threats arise . You cannot be taught in absentia , Medicine is a practical profession It is learnt by both theoretical tuition and practical demonstrations and. professional task execution One cannot study Medicine by correspondence You must present yourself to. all learning opportunities , It is very easy to pick up during an examination which student has combined textbook with practice and.
those who just studied the textbook , Lead by example . 3, Consultants to interns are in one way or another leaders Please do it with distinction . Good leadership is the highest form of service, The good leader will have a servant s heart and will lead people to self actualization Good leadership is not. for self enrichment He will not use the shoulders of his subordinates so that he can get all the honour and. glory , Punctuality is the courtesy of Kings , Arriving late and leaving early is growing a disease amongst doctors and the cell phone and bleep have. accentuated this bad habit The notion amongst people that whenever a doctor arrives late or leaves early . he she is going to save a life has cultivated this habit We all know that it is not so in many cases Please be. punctual and show respect to your colleagues and on time . When the road changes from tar to dirt to corrugation and potholes that is when rattles are. picked up and the quality of the vehicle is tested . In spite of all the negativity around us there is still enough to be extremely thankful for We are still in a. position to get world class training we can all keep our heads up high wherever we go in the world and. whenever overseas guests visit our Department they are all very impressed with our training and. compliment us on the quality surgeons that we produce We are currently addressing the apparent. weakness in systematic research through reorganization and streamlining the clinic and clinical processes . All members of the Department are urged not to fall into the trap of negative talking because this is a vicious. downward spiral one thing leads to the next and it is very difficult to get back into an upward trajectory . There is an impression that the standard of maintenance is dropping in the hospitals The Department of. Surgery is urged to be part of the solution rather stand aloof and criticize When you see a piece of paper or. other debris lying around pick it up and put it in the bin In the wards the nurses are not there to clear up. after doctors please help by clearing up after you have done a rectal examination put up an IV or while you. have your gloves on just help with the cleaning up of the sigmoidoscopy for example. Your demeanor and deportment must befit the profession at all times . Personal neatness is taken for granted Everybody is part of the professional team . We expect everybody to look like doctors and not like some other occupations where it is cool to look. scruffy , May the coming year be one of many successes and fulfilment as you strive to make the best contribution.
