Graduation Ceremony of Medical Students

Over 60 medical students received their diplomas at the University of Debrecen on Saturday. 23 Hungarian and 41 international students took the Hippocratic Oath at the ceremony.

- When you have taken your oath and joined the community of physicians, your first thought should be gratitude to all who have helped you along the way to become a physician – said László Mátyus, dean of the Faculty of Medicine at the ceremony.

Professor Mátyus emphasized that the fresh graduates had studied at one of the most prestigious universities and faculties of medicine in Hungary, which is recognized all over Europe.

Professor Mátyus highlighted that the fresh graduates were perfectly prepared to do their job as medical doctors, but also emphasized the importance of life-long learning.
