Four hundred and thirty-one students have been formally admitted to study at the St Veronica Higher Institute of Midwifery and Nursing, Buea, Southwest Region, for the 2013 academic year.

The freshmen took the matriculation oath Friday, November 7, 2013, before school authorities, some dignitaries and other returning students.

Cultural essayist and guest speaker at the event, George Ngwane, exhorted the students to blend civic responsibility and health care service delivery in a bid to practise their profession with zeal.

While admitting the various reasons which could have prompted them to opt for the profession, he, however, cautioned that by the time they will be leaving the institution, the end goal should first be to save lives.

The medical profession has been plagued by the accumulation of wealth, cumbersome bureaucratic procedures and very little value for human life, Ngwane bemoaned, stressing that the freshmen should break away from the routine of the system.

“People will give you awards, but God rewards. Make of interpersonal communication or psycho-therapy the foundation of your vocation and you will certainly excel,” he said.

On her part, the Administrator of St. Veronica Medical School, Mrs. Francisca Biaka, expressed gratitude to the Southwest Regional Delegation of Public Health for providing financial support, academic awards and student internship opportunities to the school over the years.

This booster, combined with the efforts of the staff and the commitment of students, she noted, will provide effective training for medical students and improve service quality in the health domain.

Students’ worries for employment opportunities were also echoed in the event through their representative, Theresa Achuo, who invited the school’s partners to canvass for avenues in the job market.

St Veronica Medical School went operational in 1998 with an enrollment figure of about 18 students; 15 years after it is still contributing to training health experts in society.
