“After this inauguration, you serve an internship for a year to confront extremely dynamic policy turmoil. Thus, do not stop learning, do not give up, and always work hard. I wish that you have to rely on knowledge which you have learned when having an internship at a hospital or Puskesmas,” advised dr. Wiwik.
Meanwhile, Vice Rector for Academic Affairs of UMY Dr. Ir. Sukamta, M.T., IPM emphasized that the new physicians should firmly cling to Muhammadiyah values when working as physicians. “You are Muhammadiyah physicians and you may not overlook teachings of K.H.

Happiness belongs to ones who are proud of themselves without worrying about what other people think about them. Hence, be yourself,” he stressed.
