Hello Doctors, Doctors-To-Be
#1 Happiness Through Healthcare: Message From Vice-Chancellor
Hello, Dear Students!
As you all are stepping forward to become doctors and moving closer to your dream of becoming healthcare professionals, I want to share with you two vital aspects that your healthcare can deliver.
The second aspect of healthcare delivery, —which is the result of the first aspect— is happiness. When you provide healing to a patient, you are not just spreading health but an abundance of happiness as well.
When you become a doctor and a critical patient will come to you, whose life you will save with your healthcare skills, and then break the good news to the family members of the patient, take a moment to see the smile of happiness that showers on their faces. And the best part, you will feel it too. That’s what being a doctor is all about. That’s what healthcare is all about.
Healthcare is not a service just for healing and health; it is a service for happiness.
Remember, everything you study now and everything that you will learn in your training is equipping you with the power and skillsets that will save lives and bring smiles on countless faces.
So, study smart, breakthrough challenges, and keep learning as much as you can. Becoming a doctor, you will spread happiness, that comes back to you.
Air Marshal (Dr) Pawan Kapoor
Vice Chancellor, Lincoln American University
