It is a very great opportunity,
a lifetime experience to be part of this Silent Mentor Program. I gained a lot of things that I am sure that won’t get in any textbooks or lectures.
At first, I thought by joining
this program, it will be just the same as learning anatomy using the cadavers in Anatomy Lab. However, my thought changed day by day, when I involved directly in knowing my Silent Mentor’s background, family members as well as his dedication in donating
his body for medical education. I am very touched for his sacrifices, that I am sure we could not afford to pay financially or physically.
Throughout this program, the most important
aspect that I learnt is not the medical knowledge, but the power of love and passion showed by my Silent Mentor. He was a very nice person, loved by his family, relatives and friends. Almost every day, my friends and I took good care of our Silent Mentor,
by cleaning and suturing the body, to ensure that they are always in the best condition. It instilled the value of responsibility, love and passion to our hearts. I am sure this is best to be applied to our real patients in future.
Thank you my dearest Silent Mentor Mr. Tang Nam, for your selfless sacrifices to contribute to medical education. Even though you are silent, you spoke voices that communicated with us emotionally. It is our honour
to learn from you. You will always be remembered & loved.
Last but not least, A Great Doctor is inspired by a Great Mentor. Thank you, our beloved Silent Mentors.

I have heard great things about the Silent
Mentor Workshop and I am glad that I have decided to join this workshop. I have not only learned and experienced numerous hands-on surgical skills through this one week program, but also empathy and the meaning of sacrifice. The family members of our beloved
Silent Mentors should receive an amount of respect as highly as our Silent Mentors as their sacrifices to support their loved one’s decision while having to go through the tough moments of grief were unimaginable. I have developed a sense of respect
and affection to my respectful Silent Mentor, Mr. Tang Nam who was known to be a great husband, a loving father and a caring friend through my times helping to preparing his body every day. He was indeed a great man with a big heart, I would always keep him
close to my heart, as my motivation to be the best doctor I can be, to be as kind and generous, as he was. To him, who had inspired us all, my deepest gratitude, Mr. Tang Nam.

From the first day of cleaning your body while I felt like you were just another patient who passed away, until the last day when I cleaned your body as if you were one of my family members, you
had shown to all of us that love can be simple, courageous, selfless and of no boundaries. You had left, but you left us thoughts to be pondered upon late in the night; you were gone, but nothing can carry your greatest kindness away. You were silent but you
spoke volumes. You were a gift not only to us medical students, but to all the patients we are going to meet and treat in the future. Thank you.

Silent Mentor Program, I got to know my Silent Mentor, Mdm. Tam and her family members. Donating her body for the use of medical education was really an act of love and kindness, especially when our mentor did not even know the person who is going to carry
out procedures on her. By putting trust on us, she just surrendered her body. Silent Mentor Program is like a silent movie, messages conveyed without spoken dialogue. You have taught us humanity, love and courage. Thank you, Mdm. Tam. You will always be remembered.
