 Dr Divine Banyubala, the Registrar for Medical and Dental Council, has told healthcare workers that their chosen profession is a calling that demands deep devotion to serving others with compassion, humility and genuine love.

 He stressed that hard work pays and good service to humanity uplift people to higher places adding that genuine service to mankind is a service to God.

 According to him, the healthcare sector is replete with claims of professional negligence, improper conduct and unethical behavior by doctors, dentists, physician assistants, nurses, pharmacists and others.

 "The very people who openly swear their professional oaths and commit themselves to serve us in our most vulnerable States becomes our abusers.

 This is unacceptable" he bemoaned. The Registrar stated these in a speech delivered for him, as Guest Speaker for the 4th graduation ceremony of Anglican University College of Technology (ANGUTECH) on 4th May, 2024 at Nkoranza in the Bono East region.

Mr Banyubala addressed the gathering on the theme, "towards quality professional tertiary education delivery : The role of medical and Dental Council".

The Registrar noted that often, the allure of specialised knowledge and success, if not properly manage, tend to result in bloated egos and inconsiderate conduct, and may make one lose his humanity.

 He told the graduands that "the true worth of the degrees received today lies in your ability to apply the knowledge, skills, and attitudes you've gained to effect positive change in your own life and society".

"it is imperative that you utilise your expertise and knowledge to serve humanity".

Mr Banyubala stressed that to succeed in life, one must posses a strong desire for self - improvement and a passionate commitment to achieving long - term goals.

He added that by combining acquired knowledge, developed skills and societal values such as humanity, commitment, respect, tolerance, honesty, empathy and team, individuals can become well - rounded and responsible members of society.

 The Registrar told the graduands that they are the result of significant investment by government and the people of Ghana, and must be prepared to repay by serving diligently and resolving to stay in the country that has birthed and natured you.

"Stay updated and pursue knowledge actively, as the world is evolving, seek continuous professional development, follow new methods and practices as they emerge constantly in your sector"

 "adapt to change, utilise the knowledge, skills and attitudes you have gained to overcome challenges in your career" he implored.

 Mr Banyubala advised the graduands to be courageous, resilient, proactive, adopt a problem - solving mindset, always have a backup plan, embrace opportunities as they rise, engage in networking, and strive to live up to the values of their alma mater and profession.

"Seek out and have mentors, listen to them, bite off more than you can chew, do not get stuck in one place - move on, but not out of the country saying that insist on heroes and be one" the Registrar of MDC admonished.
