You are really now on the learning curve. You are at the stage where there is so much more to be learnt,” he said to the doctors.The new doctors were also charged by the Deputy Chief Medical Officer, Dr Karen Boyle who reiterated the importance of responsibility and the need for focused individuals when dealing with all types of patients.“I urge you to be engaged. I’m taking about being physical, emotionally and mentally engaged. When you come to work, please show up. Be fully focused.”With the return of Ambassador Majeed to Cuba, it was revealed that 13 more students will be accompanying him. Presently, there are 62 Guyanese students pursuing careers in the medical field in the Spanish-speaking country.
