It is a pleasure to welcome you all to the farewell ceremony for graduates 2021. The graduation ceremony is a special event for all of us to celebrate the joint success of youth and the academic community.
To our esteemed graduates, I’d like to emphasize, that today you have accomplished one stage of your life, however, completing one stage is the beginning of the new one. We do hope, that the knowledge you have received at your Alma Mater will help you to be the leaders in whatever fields you pursue. You have nothing to fear from challenges, your desire to learn and new ideas should burn inside. And that is only up to you. Please keep the academic candle burning to ease your way towards the future.
Unprecedented time of pandemic has clearly shown what a difficult and responsible field you choose for your future activities; what sacrifice and dedication, along with the proper knowledge, are needed when you are in the service of providing healthcare activities, thereby saving lives! I wish you all bright and promising futures. May your goals be successful and rewarded!
I would also like to congratulate and thank our faculty and all other staff for their contribution in different capacities to form and help achieve the goals of these young people. Each one of you contributed immensely to what they have become today.
Congratulations to all!
Professor Zurab Vadachkoria, M.D., Ph.D.
