The annual UM Convocation ceremony was held over 4 days from Oct 21st to 24th at the Dewan Tunku Canselor and honours undergraduates and postgraduate students of the FOM.
Apart from honouring present graduands, the UM Convocation ceremony also took the opportunity to honour our past graduands. On Sunday of the 24th of October, esteemed Paediatrician and former President of the Malaysian Society of Paediatric Oncology; father of bone marrow transplantation in Malaysia and alumnus of UM, Professor Dr. Lin Hai Peng was awarded the Professor Emeritus.
Professor Dr. Lin Hai Peng currently works as a Consultant Paediatrician at Ramsay Sime Darby, Subang Jaya Medical Centre.
When asked what was the most memorable moment of a memorable convocation ceremony, Prof. Dato’ Dr. Adeeba remarked that, ‘Watching the graduands walk across the stage beaming with relief and pride and the occasional nod of thanks to me as they walk off is something I cherish and look forward to each year.’
Once again the FOM would like to wish our past and present graduands many successes and a fruitful career ahead.
