Amy Khor comes up with new Five Cs for fresh healthcare graduates ?
In Singapore, the Five Cs commonly refer to cash, car, credit card, condominium and country club membership, but Dr Khor offered up her own Five Cs as a formula for success for healthcare professionals - competence, creativity, collaboration, compassion and commitment.
Speaking at Nanyang Polytechnic's (NYP) School of Health Sciences graduation ceremony on Friday (May 4), Dr Khor said that for healthcare workers here, graduation is no longer the end of learning, as they will have to constantly adapt to meet evolving healthcare needs.
"A critical skill of survival is to be able to unlearn and to relearn. Learning involves challenging and abandoningoutdated practices or thoughts that no longer serve in the interest of our patients," she told the 435 graduating students.
