It's indeed an honour to be able to assist and be part of the residents training process and finally seeing their successfully completion as a specialist physician. I'm also very proud to be working with so many accomplished and successful physicians who are very humble and have always treated me with respect. They gave me the independence/flexibility to work on my own (with their guidance too) and appreciated my work.”
