When I was appointed at this college I became scared, worried but at the same time excited. This is absolutely a new place for me and my total blankness about the attitude of sialkotis. However, the biggest support I discovered was that Prof. Eice Muhammad, Chairman Board of Management of this institution. Prof. Eice Muhammad is a living legend, a true professional, an eminent physician and dedicated, selfless, devoted servant of the ailing humanity. I have the honor of being his student and subordinate.
This book which I am going to present you is creation of him. This book is about the professionalism written by a role model professional. Professionalism is about the commitment to carry out profession al duties. Professionalism is about tolerance, respect and caring for others. Professionalism is about the relationship with seniors, peers and juniors. Professionalism is about self-reflection, recognition of biases and correction of errors. Professionalism is about the sensitivity towards patient diversity. Professionalism is about the adherence to ethical principles. This book comprised covered and contain all aspects of professionalism and guidance. It is an excellent piece of literature for the medical professionals. Medicine is not business, it is caring.
People may have tremendous knowledge and skills but the only and only thing which distinguish them from others is attitude….
So attitude should be the first thing to nurture among all the doctors followed by achieving excellence in accomplishment of core competencies (skills) and specific competencies. Knowledge being volatile dynamic should be the last thing to learn….
Thus, it’s time for developing attitudes…. Implementing the manners of servants of ailing Humanity.
