Final Wish of our 78th Silent Mentor - the late Ms. Lee Yoke Chin



" Hope to inspire medical students to be medical practitioners who are like parents to their children, able to relieve the sufferings of patients physically and mentally "

" 希望醫學系的學者們能秉持着醫者父母心,着重和落實醫德。唯有身心靈正向的醫者,才能帶給病患最全面的治療,不僅能為病患舒緩身體的病痛,也能撫慰他們內心的創傷 "

我们非亲亦非故,您却给我们留下了两份礼物: 一份名为知识,另一份叫做无私。

A truly great mentor is hard to find, difficult to part with, and impossible to forget. I am very grateful to be able to join the 21st Silent Mentor Workshop. I am touched beyond words for the selfless sacrifice and great courage showed by our Silent Mentors. As the saying goes; a good teacher is like a candle, it consumes itself to light the way for others. I obtained a lot throughout this program. I acquired new medical knowledge and clinical skills. Besides that, the most important thing that I learned is to empathise, sympathise, appreciate and respect others. The Silent Mentors taught me the true meaning of selflessness. Thank you to our beloved Silent Mentors and their family members. Thank you, teachers, for inspiring us and making us what we are today. You will be forever remembered.

Being able to join the Silent Mentor Program is of my greatest honour and blessing. Through the learning journey with our mentors, what I have gained is beyond medical science that prepares me on becoming a doctor, but the value of humanity and selflessness, which equip me to become a better doctor. With their altruistic sacrifices, our mentors had turned themselves into a precious gift for us to serve a better future. Thank you, our Silent Mentors, you will always be remembered.

The Silent Mentor Program changed me in many ways possible. I learnt the importance of life, the virtue of patience and the meaning of contributing to society. It changed me by enforcing empathy within myself in treating patient in the future. It moulded in becoming a better doctor in serving my community. It is the ultimate way to give back to the society, like my Silent Mentor did.

I believe the Silent Mentor Program is a great motivation to all of us and me especially. The Silent Mentor showed great courage and sacrifice by donating their bodies to facilitate research and learning and that is a sacrifice of intense magnitude. They never met any of us and yet they gave themselves willingly for us to learn from them.

Thank you Silent Mentors. You are the greatest of teachers, to teach me about life even in death. May you find peace and solace in the after-life. You will be dearly missed and always be remembered.

In life, the body is something we use to accomplish many things, but we ultimately do not possess it, as it is not permanant. Birth, aging, illness and eventually death - this is the natural course of life and there is only so much that medicine can do when life has reached its end. 

But, what should we do with our body after our death? If we understand that the body is not permanent, we can do something meaningful out of our lives, such as donating it for medical research and education as Silent Mentor.
