Hello Doctors, Doctors-To-Be, and the rest!
#1 Freedom of Health: Message From Vice-Chancellor
Hello, all students and LAU members!
August 01 —Date of Today— is a very remarkable date in the history of Guyana and other Caribbean countries that have been the British Colonies in the past. The day, celebrated as Emancipation Day, recalls the abolition of slavery way back in 1834.
It’s a day for us all to go back into history, remember the struggles our previous generations had to face to win freedom, and express gratitude for the freedom we enjoy today. Well, as they say, freedom comes with responsibility. So, Emancipation Day is also a day to re-affirm our commitment to give our individual as well as group contribution to maintain freedom and responsibility in all aspects of life.
As a community of doctors and medical aspirants, we all are entrusted with the responsibility to take charge of the healthcare of mankind and build a healthy world. Being healthy is one of the most liberating experiences in the world and by contributing our part thereto, we can build a world where everybody has the “Freedom of Health.”
On occasion of Emancipation Day, I ask you all to make the best use of the learning opportunities you have got at Lincoln American University, come out as great doctors, and help us build a world with Freedom of Health for anyone and everyone.
Together, We Can.
Air Marshal (Dr) Pawan Kapoor
Vice Chancellor, Lincoln American University

#4 Our Student Atul Is Inspiring Millions!
Atul, an aspiring doctor from India, failed to qualify Medical Entrance Test in his 2018 attempt. In 2019, in just one year time, he has not only qualified NEET but has also completed the Pre-Medical Program along the way. His experience in his words:
“I wanted to go to one of the finest medical universities. So, I chose Pre-Medical from Lincoln American University as it provides NEET coaching side-by-side, along with the Pre-Med Program. And students who don’t qualify NEET, they don’t need to worry here because the University provides side-by-side coaching. So, we can study both the Pre-Med Program as well as the NEET coaching, and we can qualify our NEET exam very easily.”

#8 How To Get More Done In A Day?
“Divide your curriculum into different topics and fix certain topics for the day to study and revise. Note down your weak and strong points, and at the end of the day, must revise what you have read through the entire day,” advised Nivesh, who has qualified Medical Entrance Test in 2019 along with Pre-Medical Program. How he got it all done in one year? To know, checkout Nivesh’s story.
#9 What Makes A Great Doctor?
There are millions of doctors. They all get a quality education. They all get hands-on clinical training. And they all treasure experience every single day. Then, what’s the one quality that makes a doctor great. Is it education? Is it training? Is it experience? Well, these all qualities are important. However, all these qualities are ineffective without one quality and that quality is “Empathy.”
More than medicine, more than clinical care, what patients need for a quick recovery is empathy from those who are involved in their treatment. Empathy is what makes the difference, and empathy is what makes a great doctor. So, no matter what, treat people as well as patients with empathy and you will definitely be a great doctor and a great human being.
