President M Abdul Hamid has asked physicians and other concerned not to deceive patients and shun the attitude of doing cut-throat business to make huge money overnight in the name of treatment.
"A section of doctors and other concerned use to cheat people in the name of treatment . . . . It's really a very shameful act," the President told the teachers and students of President Abdul Hamid Medical College and Hospital (PAHMCH) as they called on him at Samobay Centre here.
Terming the medical profession as a noble one, the President said individuals involved in this profession can earn money and simultaneously help provide services to the mass people.
But, he asked the physicians to refrain from the trend of becoming rich and ensure the patients' proper treatment.
Abdul Hamid also stressed the need for ensuring modern and world-standard medical education so that the students can acquire time-befitting knowledge.
"Be nice and patient-friendly doctors . . . Don't resort to cut-throat business," the President advised the students. "Study sincerely to cope with the global competition," he added.
"As this medical college has been named after me", the President said, "Please try to uphold my image. . . . Don't tarnish it even after my death."
College Principal ANM Nowshed Khan apprised the President of the overall activities of the PAHMCH.
Later, President also held a view-exchange meeting with the lawyers association of the district at the Kishoreganj Deputy Commissioner's office and also visited Kishoreganj Gurudayal College where he studied in late sixties.
