20170910深切付託育良醫Greatest Hope for Medical Students: Becoming a Humane Doctor

Take the oath of service: When I begin medical practice I solemnly swear to dedicate myself to serve all mankind. I will practice medicine with conscience and dignity and consider the health of my patients my top priority. I will, to the best of my ability, uphold the medical profession’s honor and noble tradition. I will not allow religion, nationality, race, politics, social status, and other factors to affect my duty toward my patients.

Look at these students and how they’ve grown. For their life, they have chosen a path that is of a noble calling and can contribute greatly to the world. That path is the path of medicine. To take up the medical profession requires courage. It is a profession that we cannot go without in this world.

According to Buddhism, the greatest suffering in this world is that of illness. I often say that among the eight kinds of meritorious deeds, curing illness brings greatest merit because it’s about saving people’s life. (Aren’t all the medical students here) working toward that goal while developing (the spirit of humane doctor?) They are entering their 5th grade. When I put the stethoscopes around their necks, I prayed sincerely for each of these young future doctors.

I look forward to see them entering their clinical clerkship, a very important course for them. (At the hospital,) they can see how doctors interact with patients. They can see the suffering of patients and how patients entrust their life to doctors. This kind of education (aim to teach) is the spirit of renwen. The word renwen means (the essence of a human being.) (Our inner calling) tells us which direction to go in our life.

The essence of all the values, beliefs, and philosophies is renwen. The embodiment of the highest value of humanity is renwen. The true nature of a human being is renwen. The spirit of renwen is to serve and benefit humanity.

Each of Tzu Chi’s four missions places importance on the spirit of rewen, including our charity mission. While we carry out humanitarian aid around the world, we always do so with gratitude, respect, and love. (These three words) are essential to Tzu Chi’s four missions, and everyone should practice them.

Being grateful means that we are grateful to have the opportunities to give of ourselves. Doctors should be grateful to their patients because patients are like living textbooks. As there’s no end to learning, every patient is a living textbook for doctors. They can learn about life and learn to have a sense of mission.

Take our dialysis centers in Malaysia for example. With grateful heart, we not only offer dialysis treatment, we also inspire patients (to give of themselves.) Patients who are poor or in hardship can receive free dialysis at our well-equipped facility. We will also find out about patients’ situation, so our charity mission can provide assistance. With respect and gratefulness, we share life principles with them, and gradually, they come to realize such principles.

In Malaysia, the majority of people are not Buddhists; we serve these patients while respecting their religion. Some patients have become our volunteers; they give of themselves and help others. The joy they gained from being able to help others help them transcend their poverty and illness.

Their hearts is librated from poverty as they give of themselves and bring forth their spiritual riches. The power of love lies within (three words gratitude, respect, and love. Future doctors, if you have truly comprehended the spirit behind these (three words,) you will realize that, you’ve chosen a profession that is very meaningful.

Young men and young ladies, as I place the stethoscopes around your necks is very sincerely and piously, I also place on you (the many hopes and encouragements from my heart,) and that in the future, each of you will become a good physician. Many, many patients’ health will be on your shoulders. Countless people will count on you to provide them a quality of life that is worth living.

This all depends on the efforts you put in right now, the future advancement of medical science, and the teachings and experiences passed down by your teachers and professors. As you begin your clinical clerkship, the professors and attending physicians will support you as a friend and a mentor; they will be by your side. When they are tending the patients, don’t be afraid to ask questions; they will naturally give you guidance and share with you the good sense of being a doctor.

Indeed, we’ve put in a lot of effort (in helping you to become good doctors.)You must know that, the silent mentors you use in classes are real living bodhisattvas. When they were alive and healthy, they dedicated themselves to building hospitals and schools for Tzu Chi. And they had willingly donated their body so that once they passed away, medical students could practice on them.

No matter how many wrong cuts you make on them, these cuts all stand for their heartfelt wish that you will not make a wrong cut on any patients. You ought to know that, many of these silent mentors and had been through much difficulty with me; you must cherish them. (In helping you becoming a good doctor,) all the resources we could provide have been given to you (with good wishes and piety,) you need to cherish that, truly cherish that, and to give of yourself. This is my greatest hope of you.
